Great wine and savory food are two staples of proper luxury travel. Baja California has both (in abundance) and from April to October, the region showcases the best it has to offer in over 60 events. Last year, more than 50,000 people attended the festival, and this year’s events are already booking quickly.
Fiestas de la Vendimia (Pro Vino) and the CANIRAC restaurant association are presenting most of this year’s activities, most taking place around the wine country of Valle de Guadalupe and the neighboring seaport of Ensenada. “This diverse collection of festivities holds something for everyone, including wine seminars, award presentations, golf tournaments, vineyard concerts, bullfights, tango dancing, food and wine pairings, country picnics, fiestas, a winery inauguration, wine and lobster festival, paella competition, and more,” as reported by Mexidata, who has a great write up of this year’s festival on their site.
The official list of events can be found at Fiestas de la Vendimia. Note, the site is only in Spanish. Be sure to check out their photo gallery, though, for an idea of how much fun was had at the 2009 festival.
