About. In the heart of the Valle de Guadalupe, Baja California, Mexico, an unassuming vineyard is rewriting the narrative on what Mexican wine can and ought to be. This story is about the 2021 Casa Magoni Vino Blanco, a wine that is as distinctive and captivating as its creator, Camillo Magoni.
Hailing from Morbegno, Italy, Camillo's wine journey took him across countries and oceans, culminating in a fruitful career in Baja California. Equipped with an Enology and Viticulture degree from the esteemed Scuola Enolgica Di Alba, and a passion for winemaking acquired at the famous Nino Negri de Chiuro winery in Valtellina, Camillo landed in Mexico in 1965 at the behest of Angelo Cetto.
He quickly earned his stripes at L.A. Cetto’s winery and soon rose through the ranks, becoming one of the guiding lights of Baja California's blossoming wine industry. Over the years, he cultivated not just grapes, but a legacy defined by innovation, commitment to community, and a deep love for Baja California's unique history, culture, and traditions.
Magoni's exploration with grape varietals began in the 1960s, growing and experimenting with over a hundred types. His vineyards became the source of unique blends, helping local wineries transition from high-alcohol reds to nuanced white wines. His passion for experimentation led him to start Casa Magoni in 2012, a venture initially intended to share his creations with family and friends.
Fast forward to the present day, the Magoni family, boasting more than 278 hectares of vineyard, is one of the largest growers in Valle de Guadalupe. Their experimental vineyards, growing more than 110 different grape varietals, are arguably the most diverse in El Valle. Magoni's significant contribution to the industry is paving the way for Baja Norte's distinct viticultural identity.
