The Traveling Winemaker| Susanne and Jacques Head to Mexico

Jacques and I had a wonderful trip to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico over 4th of July weekend with several of our wine club members.

We visited several different wineries and learned a great deal about the wine region in the San Miguel area. We were told that there are 75 vineyards and 30 wineries and 9 of them are open to the public.

We started our first wine tour with a tractor led tour of the vineyard. We tasted a wide variety of wine and I can home with some delicious Cab Franc. One of the wineries was an old apple orchard that had been replanted with grapes and the wine is served on the seventy-five year old hacienda porch.

Some tips & tricks for San Miguel de Allende:

  • Known for its beautiful Spanish architecture, art scene, and cultural festivals

  • Best time to visit: November-April

  • Dining recommendation: Find a rooftop café!

  • Stay in the Centro part of San Miguel for easy walkability

  • Resever a driver for your wine tasting experience

Our wine club members also spent a few days exploring Guanajuato with day tours of the gorgeous buildings and churches. Many buildings are made of Canters which are multicolored volcanic sandstone. From underground streets to cobblestone paths, these tours were full of rich history. Of course we had to try the local food and enjoyed our day before returning to our hotel to relax with some wine.
