One more edition of the famous Harvest Festival in Ensenada is about to begin in a few more days for the 27th time, and the celebration will be extended for a week due to the large number of events that will be held in different wineries of the city of Ensenada.
It will be from July 27 to August 20 when the world-renowned wine route will celebrate major events in different venues of Ensenada to commemorate the essence of wines from Baja California.
More than 30 events make up Provino's calendar of activities, where 60 wine houses will celebrate big time with events ranging from wine pairings, tastings, dinners with renowned chefs, concerts with international artists, workshops and popular festivals, among others.
This year, the theme behind the celebrations of the harvest is in line with the declaration of the United Nations, with 2017 being the year of Sustainable Tourism for Development.
Because of this, Provino will focus on highlighting the quality of the value of the land for its wealth and, of course, its care, as has been the case of the Valley of Guadalupe and its agricultural virtues.
Wine culture is becoming more and more rooted due to these celebrations that bring cultural benefits of Valle de Guadalupe's wine, which year after year welcomes thousands of national and international tourists.
As an inaugural event, and for the second consecutive year, the event "El Salón del Vino" will be held at Jardines del Centro Cultural Riviera in Ensenada, where more than 51 wineries will offer tastings of their premium wines with over 100 labels available.
The samples of the premium labels will be accompanied by food samples of the most important restaurants of the region as well as the most representative chefs. The cost of this event is $69.00 dlls.
