The holiday of Vendimia

The holiday of Vendimia


In the Valley of Guadalupe – Mexico's wine region, the wines of which are known far beyond the country – the harvest is cropped in late July and in August the festivities dedicated to this event begin. It is a magical holiday of Vendimia, the holiday of grapes rebirth into wine – otherwise, as a magic, this process cannot be called.

In honor of the celebration the wine companies arrange concerts, theatrical performances with famous actors and musicians of the country. The obligatory part of Vendimia is also traditional Mexican dances and mariachi’s singing.

Find the answer to the eternal question "red or white?" Our excursion to the wineries "Monte Xanic" and "La Cetto" will help you. It is impossible to go to Mexico, to the valley of vineyards de Guadalupe, without tasting of the famous Mexican wines!

The history of Mexican winemaking dates back to 1521, the next year after the arrival of Spanish conquistadors to the Mexican land. They were not going to renounce the wine away from home! At this time, Cortes issued a decree that all new Spanish settlers were due to cultivate grapes on lands granted to them. As a result, the country became well-provided for wine and no longer needed the export of it from Andalusia to the end of the century.

The descendants of first Russian immigrants – Molokans – are successful winemakers too in Baja California. Molokans settled here a century ago. Hard-working, striving for peace within the community and beyond, they quickly gained respect among the local population. We suggest you to visit the House-Museum of the first Russian settlers of the last century in Mexico, to know their way of life and traditions.

Then you will lunch in Puerto Nuevo with the lobster and famous Mexican beer "Crown".
