Bichi Wines La Santa Rosa del Perú 2022

MXN $765

Grape: Rosa del Perú (black moscatel)

Region: Tecate, Baja California, Mexico

You’ll taste/smell: a very berry fruit-forward natural red wine, cloudy as it is unfiltered; tastes like cold-pressed sour raspberries, dusty roses, grapefruit pith and Sour Patch kids. Sounds weird but trust us, it is unbelievably delicious.

Good to have it with: chicken wings, pastor tacos

The Winery: Bichi Wines

Mexico has a centuries-long history of winemaking that has mostly gone under the radar. Spanish conquistadores planted vines in the early 1500’s, before both Chile and Argentina, and Baja California represents about 90% of the vines in the entire country due to the ideal climate and geography. Brothers Noel & Jair Tellez, with the help of Chilean (by way of Burgundy) winemaker Louis-Antoine Luyt, are producing amazingly fresh and energetic wines from very old, recently recovered vineyards of Misión (aka Listán Prieto), Rosa del Peru (aka Moscatel Negro), Tempranillo and Carinena, among other varieties. Bichi means “naked” in some parts of northern Mexico, and for Téllez and Luyt, it thus seemed like an appropriate name to give their new natural wine project.

Based at the Téllez family ranch in Tecate, just over the border from California, Bichi farms 10 hectares of their own Tecate vineyards biodynamically and collaborates with a growing family of organic farmers working vineyard land in Tecate and around Valle de Guadalupe. The majority of the vines are head-trained and all are dry-farmed, hand harvested, fermented with native yeast, and aged in neutral barrel or vat so that the emphasis is on each wine’s Mexican terruño.
