There was live music, a show of regional Mexican dances, and Winemaker representatives to answer any questions regarding the wine. All led by Sommelier Victor Medina.
We had the participation of wine producers from Baja California, Chihuahua, Coahuila and Guanajuato, with a selection of sparkling, white and red wines from the best regions of Mexico. Members and guests had the opportunity to taste the selection of cheeses prepared by chef Jorge Salas who present the flavor of the region and fresh homemade bread for the occasion.
