Baja California Wines Win Nine Medals


Four Baja California winemakers won 9 medals at the Bacchus International Wine Competition 2019, the most important in the Spanish market.

The wine contest is the only one in Spain that belongs to the World Federation of Great International Contests of Wines and Licore (Vinofed), which integrates the most famous contests in the whole world.

Of the wines from the region, the most awarded was Monte Xanic with 4 medals for its young wines: Selección, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot obtained Gold; while Calix Blend and Merlot, Silver.

Casta de Vinos, a Valle de Guadalupe winery that has been participating since 2016, for the first time obtained Silver for its Black Caste, an assemblage of Nebbiolo and Petite Sirah.

Viñas del Sol obtained gold and silver medals for “Los Santos Brujos”, Tempranillo and Chardonnay.

Viñedos de la Reina, which last year had already taken Silver for its 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, repeated the triumph, this time with a younger wine, Syrah 2017.

According to the results, 10 Mexican wineries reached the record of 19 medals, almost 60% more than the 12 of 2018.

This year 7 Gold medals and 12 Silver medals were obtained, historical maximums for each of the two categories.

I am a writer, musician, performer, and producer. Over the last 10 years, I have been working on making music that matters at I love to write stuff that inspires me, moves me…makes me want to get up and shout. I love living the inspired life. I hope it comes through in my music. My background in music? I saw Elvis when I was a kid. Does that count? I also played the Nursing home circuit when I was 9. I toured with my turntable and lip-synced for the fans. It was a great way to start. I have also been in an underground punk rock band (Twisted Nixon 1996-2002). I owned a record label producing the 3rd Wave SKA band The Skeletones. But now, I am pushing my personal artistic boundaries into the 21st century creating diverse music. I also engage around the world as a global social justice warrior and political activist and syndicated writer with over 500 articles published around the world on matters of politics, foreign policy, and human rights. As of 2020, I have over 100 songs written and produced. My music is available on all digital platforms.
