The Best Things to Do in the Valle de Guadalupe this April
Wine a little, laugh a lot this April in Valle de Guadalupe with the best food & wine event in Baja California: XXII Festival de las Conchas y el Vino Nuevo (Shell and New Wine Festival). Baja California is recognized as the best wine-producing state in Mexico thanks to its climate and geographic location, so this is a festival you cannot afford to miss. We absolutely love that there are plenty of things to do in Valle de Guadalupe.
Today, we are excited to tell you everything you need to know about the event and where to stay when visiting this beautiful town.
Information on the Event
The XXII Shell and New Wine Festival combines Mexican gastronomy, viticulture, and aquaculture, creating the perfect blend for your palate. It is a tribute to the country’s wine culture, bringing together 80 wineries and offering over 150 wine brands recently launched in the market. The ultimate best thing to do in Valle de Guadalupe is, in fact, to taste fine wines (great for oenophiles!) Plus, more than 20 shellfish producers and 50 local restaurants will be working together to offer samples of oysters, abalone, clams, and mussels.
The event will be held on Sunday, April 23, 2023, at the Terraza del Mar of the Coral & Marina Hotel, from 12 to 7 PM. Admission will cost MX$1 200 (around US$65), and the entrance for children under 12 is free.
We recommend arriving on time so as not to miss a single thing. Wine tasting is from 12 to 6 PM, but if they run out of a specific brand, you could miss the opportunity to sample it. Please note that pets and food are not allowed. The entrance ticket is personal and cannot be shared, so be sure to have it with you on the event day!
