Fodor's Expert Review La Lomita
Owned by Fernando Pérez Castro, this new generation winery creates rich wines made with 100% local grapes. As one of the smaller wineries, their blends are sold to top restaurants and hotels in Mexico City, Rivera Maya, and Cabo. The preferred Sacro—a mix of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot—has hints of pomegranate, cherry, pepper, berries, and maple syrup, while the Tinto de la Hacienda has characteristics of compote and jam. The tasting room is one of the nicest in the region with wood crate ceilings with dangling vintage bulbs and a chalkboard wall sharing tales of the grapes. Tastings are Wednesday to Sunday from 11 to 4 and until 6 on the weekends. The cost is $10 and includes four wines, snacks, and a tour of the winery.
