Totol is a family owned winery and brewery located in Tijuana, Baja California. Established in 2009 by Gustavo and Marisol Peña the name of the brand holds a special meaning to the both of them. As a young girl, Marisol could not pronounce her first name and would refer to herself as “Totol.” As a true example of Mexican romanticism, when it came time to choose a name for their brand, Gustavo quickly settled on his wife’s childhood nickname.
With a focus on aromatic expression, their wines are made from grapes sourced from vineyards where they’ve established long-term relationships. Consistent access to specific vineyard parcels contributes to the consistency of their wines. In the end, the ladybug that can be found on their labels represents the joy and simplicity that Gustavo & Marisol hope to reflect in the wines that the produce.
