Sayulita Wine Shop is a fun and quirky little shop full of delicious wines, spirits, and other specialty items. Beyond simply selling fine and quality wines, Sayulita wine shop offers a variety of fun events, such as tasting parties, private tastings, a membership with exclusive benefits, “Wine Wednesdays” with live music, and many other enjoyable events for your entertainment. I talk with Sayulita Wine Shop about their products and fun services that we can take advantage of here in Sayulita.

Can you tell us a bit about Sayulita Wine Shop—what type of wine do you sell, and how do you choose which wine to carry in your shop?

Our selection of products reflects both our passion for quality, as well as our understanding of the diversity of distinctive wines and spirits of Mexico. We carry many excellent wines from around the world, including many organic wines, but we are most proud to be in a position to educate people about the amazing wines from the different wine producing regions of Mexico. Similarly, we also carry a very extensive selection of tequila, mezcal, raicilla, sotol, and other spirits to give people the chance to find their unique new favorites. Many are from small-scale, artisanal production, and are simply not available outside of Mexico.

What is the sommelier experience like, and what other unique services do you offer at Sayulita Wine Shop?

We offer both wine and spirit tasting experiences by appointment. We offer this service both right in our attractive, air-conditioned store, as well as at private functions. Our sommeliers are ready to educate and delight you with eye-opening introductions to the diversity of flavors that Mexico has to offer. Additionally, every Wednesday afternoon we host an informal, regularly scheduled "Wine Wednesdays" event with live music. We also organize and sponsor an annual wine festival, as well as bring in winemakers to preside over elegant "wine-maker's dinners". Ask anyone in our store for more details!

How can Sayulita Wine shop help customers find the best customized wine for their tastes?

Come to “Wine Wednesdays" to try our various wines, or better yet, schedule a private tasting! Also, our staff is knowledgeable about our products and can recommend the best option for you.

What is your personal favorite wine, and why?

I really appreciate the Pinot Noir varietal. We carry an extensive selection of Pinot Noirs, many from Mexico, including organic bottles. Some favorites include Don Leo Pinot Noir from Coahuila, Mexco, Vinos de la Reina from Valle de San Vicente, Baja California, Mexico, and Bouchard Pete & Fils from Bourgogne, France.

What other products do you carry?

Besides the wine, fine spirits, and other upscale beverages already mentioned, we also carry certified cuban cigars, cheeses, and fine chocolate. There are as well many elegant accessories available, including jewelry, gentleman's items, and a selection of historic, vintage flasks, decanters, and glasses. Be ready to share your favorite spirit flavor from a beautiful, fashionable crystal and sterling silver hip flask! We recently sold our nicest authentic Tiffany and Co. flask for over $500, and are always on the lookout for similar distinctive items to add to our collection.

Is there anything else you would like readers to know?

We are starting a wine club for select local residents! Let us know if this interests you. We urge people to subscribe to this club in order to receive the benefits of exclusive offers. We will be offering sample tasting events for members only. Different levels of quality and quantity subscriptions are being offered for the memberships. Additionally, we have delivery available if you’d like to order a product and have it brought straight to your home or rental! We are open every day from 12:00 p.m. through 9:00 p.m.
