1st GastroVino: Baja Food and Wine Festival

The Gastro Vino in Todos Santos is a festival that has been brought together by the pueblo’s own Bodega de Todos Santos, and was organized to celebrate the typical food and wine of the Baja California region. Several wineries from Northern Baja will offer tastings and wine for purchase, while many of the top chefs from the Todos Santos region will tease your palates with their local delicacies. Bands will alternate on the stage throughout the day and a silent auction will benefit local charities. A general admission ticket will include a wine glass for 2oz tastings as well as food samples. More wine and more food can be purchased.
