The Producer

About Bichi

Bichi was founded in 2014 by the Téllez family, who moved to Baja from neighboring Sonora, hence the name Bichi, which means “naked” in the Sonoran Yaqui dialect. Noel left his day job as a lawyer and is now the sole proprietor of Bichi, overseeing all day-to-day operations of the winery. Helping out with winemaking duties is Beaujolais-trained Yann Rohel. Noel is continuing to grow and learn and is regularly seeking out new vineyards and evolving the Bichi winemaking style. It’s hard not to talk about Bichi without mentioning the labels, which are uniquely Mexican and represent the Téllez family's whimsical sense of humor. Inside the bottles are incredibly vibrant and transparent wines that evoke the nearby Pacific Ocean, the granite soils, and rugged mountain vineyards of their region. Through the persistent work of the family and their farmers and collaborators, lively Baja wine is officially on the map. - Jose Pastor Selections.

About the Region

Baja California,

Natural wine production in Baja California, Mexico, embodies the region's spirit of innovation and its unique blend of Old World tradition and New World creativity. Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez, Baja California's diverse microclimates and terroirs provide an ideal canvas for winemakers to experiment with a wide array of grape varieties. From the coastal plains of the Valle de Guadalupe to the rugged terrain of the Valle de Ojos Negros, the region's vineyards thrive under the warm sun and cool ocean breezes. Natural winemakers in Baja California embrace sustainable farming practices, eschewing synthetic chemicals in favor of organic and biodynamic methods to nurture healthy vines and vibrant ecosystems. In the cellar, they employ minimalist techniques, allowing the grapes' natural flavors to shine through with spontaneous fermentation and minimal sulfur usage. The resulting wines are a testament to the region's terroir, with bright fruit flavors, lively acidity, and a sense of place that reflects the rugged beauty of Baja California. Whether enjoyed with local cuisine or savored on their own, natural wines from Baja California offer a taste of Mexico's burgeoning wine scene and the promise of discovery with every sip.
