This review is hard to get past being grossly overcharged on the exchange rate. First of all, many of the other reviews about tasting, variety, friendly, location, are all true.
This review is about trusting what they say. Don't know name, but person I dealt with is in the picture with the goatee. Told me they don't carry name brands as boutique makers are better - compared them to boutique wine makers. Hmmm. The last I tasted, Chateau St Michelle was pretty good for wine, and Casadores is pretty good for tequila. Maybe off brands are good so you can say what you want, charge what you want, and never really be compared or challenged. So here's my story. Take it for what it's worth and hold onto your wallet.
Found a nice bottle. When I asked price I heard and saw $39 (yes they show mexican peso price, but don't hand you a calculator). When they ran my visa they charged $585 pesos. So you all say - buyer beware. Sure, I should have paid more attention. But the friendliness is not about honesty. So I went back later in the day trying to fix the overage and was willing to pay in cash. When I returned, Marta was friendly and said, "when we run credit, we always use a 15 peso / $1 exchange." Well that friendly tidbit was missing from my discussion when I made the purchase (not with her). She then wandered over to the credit card machine and said maybe she could reverse the charge - nope! Ah, she said, let me try your card - fiddled a bit, but still nope! I think you get my drift here. This is a place I wouldn´t trust what they tell you. Yeah, it was only $10 they took me for, but at some point it also comes down to honesty. All I could do is walk out with my tequila - on the good side, it should be a good siping type.
