VALLE FOOD & WINE FESTIVAL
A three-day festival to celebrate the beauty and bounty of Mexico’s magical wine valley.
Valle Food & Wine Festival is the not-to-miss gastronomic festival of the year in the hottest travel destination in the West, featuring dishes from top chefs from both sides of the border, tastings of regional wines, cocktails, craft beer, cooking demos, book signings, live music, art, talks, and more.
The 2022 edition will be hosted in BRUMA, the valley’s most elegant hotel and restaurant property. Our mission is to bring attention to the sustainable development of this magical region and to promote its unique cuisine and world-class wines to a discerning and appreciative crowd. And, of course, to have a great time. For more about what to expect and what we’re about, visit our ABOUT page.

VALLE DE GUADALUPE
Valle de Guadalupe, just 65 miles south of the Mexican border, has become the “it” travel and wine tasting destination for millennials to baby boomers.
Nestled in a peaceful valley surrounded by stunning arid mountain ranges, this wine region, often compared to the Napa Valley of days gone by, has been featured in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Condé Nast Traveler, Vogue, Travel & Leisure, Wine Enthusiast, Wine Spectator, Food & Wine, and Sunset, among other publications.
In 2019, Conde Nast Traveler called the region “the next great food scene.” Wine Spectator says it is “one of the last untapped great wine regions left in the world.” The Valle de Guadalupe is a uniquely magical place. If you’ve been here, you know that magic. If you haven’t, we can’t wait for you to experience it for yourself at the Valle Food & Wine Festival. For more information, go to our Travel page.
“this mexican wine country is calling to millennials, with modern, design-y wineries and grit that can’t be found in napa or sonoma.”
A stellar lineup of chefs from both sides of the border prepare Baja California-inspired dishes using local, seasonal, and heirloom ingredients under the sun and stars of Valle de Guadalupe.
