Similar to a good garage band, Mauricio Cantu and his four partners started making wine in a garage at Aragón 126 back in 2007. They named their wine Madera 5 after an inside joke involving a good golf story and a 5 wood.
Unpretentious, just like the five amigos, is the best way to describe the style of their award winning wines. Under the guidance of partner & winemaker, Victor Segura (Las Nubes), their affordably priced wines are highly sought after throughout Mexico. Not surprisingly, they have quickly caught on with consumers in the U.S. and their Tempranillo Cabernet is amongst La Competencia’s best selling red wines.
One thing that makes Madera 5 unique from its peers in El Valle is that all of the fruit used in the production of their wines is sourced from vineyards located south of Ensenada in Valle de San Vicente.
