I shared this kind of tasting experience with Advanced Sommelier Jill Zimorski plus several hundred wine writers and wine lovers during our Rías Baixas Albariño virtual tasting.

There have been two Wine and Food Festivals in the past couple of weeks...one in the Cabo area and the other in Todos Santos...spotlighting the wines of Baja, with wonderful food pairing dinners the night before. Besides all the artists who live here, we are also known for our chefs here in Todos Santos. I think your readers would find the history of Baja's winemaking area and what the vineyards are producing, very interesting. Wendy Rains, wendy@buildinginbaja.com
