Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Garza Blanca Preserve, Resort & Spa on the southern shores of Puerto Vallarta pairs its monthly dinner events at Blanca Blue with perfect notes of flavor featuring wines from Mexico’s flourishing Monte Xanic winery.

Known as Mexico’s leading wine country, the Guadalupe Valley of Baja California is home to Monte Xanic winery, which provides alluring selections to ensure a palate-pleasing finish. Straight from the lush vineyards to the Banderas Bay beachfront Garza Blanca, where gourmands and wine enthusiasts meet, Monte Xanic pours its finest blends complementing gastronomic creations at this resort’s esteemed Blanca Blue Restaurant & Lounge.

As a culinary authority in Puerto Vallarta, Blanca Blue is home to the destination’s top wine cellar, making it the ideal setting for a wine showcase. Intimate 25-person groups are served by the in-house sommelier, Elsa González Pieuchot, while Chef Francisco Tadeo Ruano (who just represented Mexico at the annual Food & Wine Classic in Aspen) serves a menu tailored to the wines’ character: bold, crisp, sweet or dry.

Monte Xanic winery manager and founder Hans Backhoff accompanies the tastings with a presentation of featured wines including Calixa Cabernet/Syrah, a signature Cabernet Sauvignon, a Limited Edition Syrah/Cabernet and a 2007 Gran Ricardo.

Blanca Blue at Garza Blanca Preserve, Resort & Spa is home to Puerto Vallarta’s Best Wine Cellar (as voted by Vallarta Lifestyle magazine readers,) boasting more than 260 labels and 2,600 bottles of fine wines from around the world.

Stunning architectural design, undeniably beautiful natural surroundings by the Pacific Ocean and contemporary cuisine set the stage for romance or commingling. Dinners are enjoyed inside the Blanca Blue Restaurant or al fresco with torches illuminating views of the ocean. Private wine tastings can also be arranged by the resort.
