Viñedos en Flor 2013 — the Flowering of the Vines (a Prelude to Vendimia)

Viñedos en Flor 2013 — the Flowering of the Vines (a Prelude to Vendimia)

Fiestas de la Vendimia and the Provino Committee welcomed families, wine and food lovers, and visitors from throughout the world to Las Nubes Winery and the 2013 Viñedos en Flor, which begins the nearly four-month-long celebration of the grape harvest in Baja California.  The valley floor of Mexico’s wine country, the Valle de Guadalupe near Ensenada, is now lushly canopied with bright green grape leaves and tiny buds will soon become juicy globes of fruit. To herald this period, the Flowering of the Vines is held annually as a prelude to Vendimia and features scores of wineries offering tastings, as well as music and fun for all.

This year, the event was especially geared to the idea of  ‘earth and people’ and the need for a sustainable cycle:  Nature provides the resources for life and living things; humans utilize and nurture the resources to ensure sustainability. The goal of Viñedos en Flor is to celebrate that continuity, a cycle of productivity that is at the very root of a thriving society.  No surprise then that the fiesta saw children frolicking and creating artwork under the direction of Marco Miranda and Angel Delgado; farmers and winemakers enjoying the fruits of their labor; musicians and dancers expressing their joy, and everyone  savoring edible evidence of this successful concept! Food was bountiful, prepared in the ‘campestre’ regional style by Agnes Cameleyre and her team, and it provided the perfect pairing to a day of fun and appreciation.
