The 3rd Annual Valle Food & Wine Festival Returns to Valle de Guadalupe
The 3rd annual Valle Food & Wine Festival is returning to Finca Altozano in Baja’s Valle de Guadalupe on Saturday, October 5th. The festival will feature over 40 award-winning Chefs and culinary leaders from both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. A variety of top area wineries, craft breweries, vendors, and a live performance by musical group Ozomatli.
The Valle Food & Wine Festival was founded in 2017 by chefs Javier Plascencia and Nancy Silverton and food writer Carolina Carreño. In just two years, it has become one of the premiere culinary festivals in the region, celebrating the beautiful bounty of cuisine and wine of Baja, California.
The festival will feature plenty of opportunity to try out of the very best from a variety of incredible wineries, craft breweries, world class restaurants, and top chefs. In harmony with the joy of trying new food and drinks, live music and dancing will be happening, along with a foray in arts like live painting and crafting.
Curated talks will also take place as some of the most well-recognized and respected names in cooking will be passing on their knowledge and wisdom to curious festival goers. The list of celebrated chefs that will be participating in the festival include Wolfgang Puck, Rick Bayless, Jonathan Waxman, Brian Malarkey, Brad Wise, Drew Deckman and many more.
Along with plenty of fabulous food and drink, the festival will have a major focus on sustainability. There will be no plastic straws or plastic water bottles at the festival, and all plates and utensils will be biodegradable. Safe, filtered water and biodegradable cups will be available all throughout the festival grounds. Local ingredients will also take priority, and thanks to the generosity of the local population at Masienda, all tortillas served at the festival will be made from non-GMO, heirloom corn cultivated on Oaxacan farms.
A variety of ticketing options will be available online, with general admission tickets starting at $125. VIP Early Access tickets can be purchased for $425 for a limited time if you’re looking for an unparalleled experience.
