To further Guipzot's commitment to diversity, she has also forged a partnership with Alamo Colleges to encourage Chicanos and women to get into wine. Wine tours to Mexico and an upcoming program that combines a wine tasting with entertainment provided by a Mexican opera singer only further her goal of "curating experiences" around wine. If Mexican wine doesn't become the next big thing, it won't be for lack of trying on Guipzot's part.
Casa Guipzot brings Mexican
wine to San Antonio
Casa Guipzot is a wine shop and tasting room created by Salena and Eduardo Guipzot, a local couple with a passion for wine. Salena previously worked in mergers and acquisitions and lived in Oregon. Her time in the Pacific Northwest, specifically the Dundee Hills area, exposed her to the world of wine. Traveling through Mexico with her husband, who is originally from Mexico, further influenced her and exposed her to Mexican wine.
Casa Guipzot in the news.
Salena and Eduardo Guipzot are on a mission to change the way San Antonians think about wine.
In a small storefront on the West Side, they have created one of the most exciting new wine destinations in the city with Casa Guipzot, a shop that’s barely a year old and taps into a history that extends more than 500 years.
Even though regions such as Chile, Argentina, and Texas are getting lots of attention, Mexico has a much older winemaking tradition. Spaniards began planting grapes shortly after the conquest, and the oldest winery in the Americas, Casa Madero in Coahuila, was established in 1597.
