Guadalupe Valley festival to celebrate food, music and local wines

The Guadalupe Valley in Baja California is gearing up to host the third Guadalupe Valley Wine, Food and Music Festival, a celebration of “impressive chefs, amazing musicians and local wines.”

The event, held in Ensenada, will offer festival-goers a meal prepared with local ingredients and paired with 12 of the best wines the Guadalupe Valley has to offer, accompanied by musical entertainment by a selection of handpicked national and international artists.

Creative director Samantha Archibald told the newspaper Milenio that they were not trying to create a sell-out event with the playbill but build community.

The festival is expected to welcome 1,500 people who will get the opportunity to taste the cooking of Mexico’s most prominent chefs, including Adria Marina, a contestant in the reality television show Top Chef México, and Rodolfo Castellanos, chef and manager of the renowned Oaxaca restaurant Origen.

“The line-up of chefs is similar to that of a roster of musicians. We are definitely sure that chefs are now the new rockstars. Instead of having a single chef or restaurant, we thought about coming up with a curated group through which all the expressions of Mexico could be attained . . .” Archibald said.

“The festival is for those who know electronic music, people who like good food, good wine and travel.”

The festival will be hosted by the Decantos Vinícola vineyard on the night of September 15. A US $200 entrance fee covers food and music but not wine.
