Maciel Winery, Villa Montefiore scheduled first to bring Valle de Guadalupe to Point Loma Village
San Diego CA— Valle de Guadalupe is home to some of the most untouched and spectacular wineries on the coast. To share the charm of Baja-made wines without leaving Point Loma, The Wine Pub invites renowned wine experts and San Diegans to the local patio for its newest series, Meet the Baja Winemaker.
The guided, four-course dinner begins on April 12 with Cava Maciel winery’s Jorge Maciel and followed by Villa Montefiori winery’s Paolo Paoloni on July 31. Both wineries were discovered on The Wine Pub’s group trips to Valle de Guadalupe, and quickly favored. Food will be prepared by The Wine Pub’s resident chef and owner of Baja California restaurant Mancha de Castro, Sergio Castro.
“The more I travel across the border and get to know these winemakers, my list of experts to invite to The Pub grows longer,” said Owner of The Wine Pub, Sandy Hanshaw. “It’s always been important to me to provide our guests the opportunity to get up close and personal with renowned experts. When we brought in our culinary gem from Baja, I knew it was time to launch this series.”
