A Wine to Try...Art by Amy Elizabeth Wright, Photography by Jaime Lagdameo
A chance meeting of two Houstonians in another country turned into the poetry of a lifetime. Sandra and Jerry happened to be vacationing at Ikal del Mar Hotel (now the Tides) in the Riviera Maya in 2001 and hit it off quickly. The two had much in common, including travel, and on a trip to Argentina with a group of friends, while on a hiking trip they were inspired by the region to start their own vineyard. And so, Ikal 1150 was born. The name, inspired by their meeting, and the Mayan word poetry also describes the signature body and distinct flavor described by many as poetry in a bottle. About 1000 cases are produced for the US yearly.
