In the spirit of continuing to promote the culture of wine, the Baja California Provino Committee will hold for the first time in the city of Tijuana, B.C. the “Wine Festival Without Borders” on Saturday, October 22, 2022.
This event represents an important platform for the promotion of wine, viticulture, and gastronomy in the region under the premise that there are no borders for wine; wine does not divide but on the contrary, wine unites people, without distinction.
The entire experience of Provino will be focused on being able to bring the different oenological proposals of the wine valleys of Baja California, a region that has positioned itself not only at the national level for being responsible for 75% of the wine produced in Mexico but also for the optimal qualities of the climate and soil that are reflected in the quality of its wines, many of them awarded in international competitions. Therefore, the Festival del Vino sin Fronteras celebrates the culture of wine through 50 participating Baja California wineries, with tasting and sale of +100 wine labels.
Thanks to the alliance with the Culinary Art School, an important gastronomic hotbed in our region, this festival will be enriched with the participation of 30 Tijuana restaurants, including traditional establishments, new proposals, and urban gastronomy to complement the offer to the attending public, who they will have the opportunity to try samples to accompany the different wines of their choice.
The event will take place in the Hipodromo Caliente parking lot from 1:00 PM to 10:00 PM and will also feature an artistic-musical program highlighting local talent. The cost of the ticket is $1,200 MN which includes wine and food tastings from 1:00 PM to 5:00 or while supplies last, punctuality is recommended for attendees to enjoy the food and wine experience.
To contribute to the month of the fight against breast cancer, Provino Baja California will benefit with this festival “Mujeres por Mujeres, A.C.”, Civil Association and Support Group for women and men who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, providing care in prevention issues, in detection and follow-up studies and even with transportation and nutrition.
Regardless of the economic and/or in-kind contribution, this rapprochement represents an important link between both organizations to carry out workshops in the wine valleys, taking cancer detection units to the three towns of Valle de Guadalupe.
In the same way, ties have been strengthened with the Baja California Tourism Secretariat to strengthen efforts to promote the wine sector, not only for this event in Tijuana but also for the 43rd World Congress of Vine and Wine. It came to be held at the end of October in our State, which will receive delegations and experts from 48 countries.
