The wines of Valle de Guadalupe are fast becoming competitive with the best of the world. In the words of wine guru James Suckling, of Wine Spectator, Baja California “might be one of the last untapped great wine regions left in the world.” Valle Food & Wine Festival is proud to present a curated selection of wines from over 20 of the most acclaimed wineries in the region. Admission to the festival includes free drink tastings until 6:30 p.m. Tickets for wine after 6:30 p.m. can be purchased at the festival.
Baja California has an exciting and fast-growing craft beer scene, and those local chelas, as well as Mexican-inspired suds from north of the border, will be showcased in the Festival’s Beer Garden Without Borders. Festival admission includes free drink tastings until 6:30 p.m. Tickets for beer after 6:30 p.m. can be purchased at the festival.
We are proud to serve house-made aguas frescas prepared with the ingredients from Finca Altozano gardens. Festival admission includes free aguas frescas until 6:30 p.m. Tickets for additional aguas frescas can be purchased at the festival. We will also have complimentary water stations throughout the festival. Coffee drinks will be available for purchase.
In addition to all that comes with festival admission, VIP guests will have early entrance to the festival, a Premium Parking pass, and exclusive access to the VIP Lounge. The lounge, shaded from the afternoon sun and romantically lit in the evening, features unlimited drinks, including a curated selection of Baja wines, a private bar and mixologist, an exquisite Baja raw bar and other delicious hors d’oeuvres, all with a preferred view of the band stage.
