It was a cold February in 2005 when Bonnie and Ben Benoit first visited the Valle de Guadalupe. It was love at first sight. Having spent over 35 years in the wine industry, primarily designing wine cellars and wineries and staging wine tastings, what better of a way to retire than to open a small winery in the heart of the “Napa” of Mexico.
With Vieux Telegraph and Chateau Beaucastle as our model we planted our vineyards with Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Counoise. Our first block of Grenache was planted in 2008, followed by Syrah and Mourvèdre in 2011, and finally the Counoise in 2012. Our Counoise is the only block in all of Mexico.
The First vintage was in 2011 and was released as Bx3. With the 2016 Harvest we had a blend of all our vineyards, an “Estate” wine it was released as Clos Benoit.
La Paloma is our Estate white wine. The blend is of Rhone varietals Viognier, Grenache Blanc and Roussanne.
