IntoWine asked our panel of experts to share their recommendations for the best wine to pair with Mexican cuisine:

Mexican food is a cornucopia of ingredients on a plate and to find a wine to work with the diversity of flavors isn’t easy. But the Kalyra Cabernet Sauvignon Lot 6 ($22) from Santa Ynez is full of black cherry, dark raspberry, oak and pomegranate combining to create a surprisingly rich cab with an acidic backbone that can stand up to grilled meats like carne asada and the subtle nuances of rice and beans. It’s also dynamite with guacamole! Not a powerful cab, the growing condition in Santa Barbara County allow it to be mild and charming. Michael Cervin, Wine Judge, Restaurant Critic, and IntoWine Featured Writer

Visiting wine country? Why spend $250 per day in tasting fees when you can get the wine pass and pay less then half of that? 1 Day with the wine pass = $125+ in savings. 2 Days with the wine pass = $250+ in savings. The Priority Wine Pass


Best wine to pair with Mexican food. A tough one but try Corona Non Vintage or its softer sibling Corona Light. Cezar Kusik, IntoWine Featured Contributor 


Mionetto Prosecco - Let’s face it, we all feel ripped off by high-priced Mexican food. So leave the bottle of Krug in the wine cellar and grab a bottle of Mionetto Prosecco next time you’re leaving the taco truck. Instead of feeling inferior because you were too lazy to cook, you’ll feel elated sipping on the fizz of Italy’s latest and greatest. Word to the wise, Prosecco is not just for Mimosas. Light, fruity and full of dry, crisp apple flavors the Mionetto prosecco is not for long term drinking but you may forget about the cellar when you have a couple of cases of this laying around.  Michael Whitehead, IntoWine Featured Writer
