Wines For Cinco de Mayo     by Marty Cook

 

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Cinco de Mayo is an annual Mexican celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army's victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862. This event is not a federal holiday in Mexico and has actually become a bigger celebration in the United States than it is in all of Mexico. As I always say, “Whatever excuse you need to party!”

 

Although Cinco de Mayo means mucho margaritas for many, there are many wines that pair well with your favorite Mexican dishes. Some of the best wines for Cinco de Mayo, along with some Mexican dishes with which you can pair them, are suggested in great detail in the

“Wine ‘Til Sold Out” blog entitled From The Vine, located at https://www.wtso.com/blog/the-best-wines-for-cinco-de-mayo/. Another excellent source for wines to consider and wines to avoid when pairing with Mexican foods is a blog entitled Betty’s Wine Musings, which can be found at https://www.bettyswinemusings.com/pairing-wine-with-cinco-de-mayo. Please check out these links or Google for “Wines for Cinco de Mayo” and you will find a wealth of information!

 

Please join our Cinco de Mayo celebration on Wednesday, May 5th at 7:00 p.m. Eastern/New York time at the Zoom link shown below. 

 

And, as always, please remember to take photos of the front and back labels from the wine you plan to feature and send them to us at WineCat@pa.net by Noon on Wednesday so that they can be included in our PowerPoint slide lineup for our Cinco de Mayo Wine Wednesday!

 

We look forward to seeing you on Cinco de Mayo!
