More than 1,200 wine buyers and enthusiasts showed up for the fourth edition of Banorte’s Nation of Wines festival, on Tuesday, Jan. 24, and Wednesday, Jan. 25.

The festival, considered to be the most important and exclusive wine and gastronomy event nationwide, was held inside the Campo Marte military camp in Mexico City’s Chapultepec Park and was the prelude of a weeklong wine jubilee organized by the gastronomic marketing agency Paladar.

This year, Nation of Wine showcased more than 80 Mexican wineries, along with eight high-end restaurants.

The event also included a series of wine-pairing tasting menus led by leading sommeliers.

“We believe that it was the most successful edition of the four that have been held to date,” said Valentina Ortiz Monasterio, founder of the event.

All participants in the two-day fest were presented with a personalized Riedel glass to be able to sample wines from the participating estates.

There was also a Handshake Speakeasy bar with Montelobos mezcal, a Nami Sake booth and a Lieb Tobacco booth, as well as a stand from La Increíble, a bookstore located in Mexico City’s Condesa neighborhood that carries a wide range of books on wine and gastronomy.
