Mid-Summer Festival Update Part II

Can it really be late July already? Must be, because we’re coming up on one of our fave fests, Verbena Campestre! This annual event proves there’s more to the Baja wine scene than Valle de Guadalupe. Verbena Campestre is held at the family-owned Vinedos San Cosme near the start of Baja’s Ruta Antigua south of Ensenada, a bit past Maneadero but north of Santo Tomas. This well-organized party is worth the drive! We’ve attended the past couple of years and have enjoyed relaxing at the tables under the trees and umbrellas, sipping wine and watching the party build around us. There’s plenty of live music and the patio in front of the stage quickly fills with dancing queens (and kings). A band we loved at the 2015 Verbena Campestre, Tinta Bohemio, is slated to play again this year; you’re sure to enjoy their very charismatic lead singer, who really works the crowd. Verbena Campestre is this Saturday, July 29 beginning at 2 pm, and the party goes on long after dark. Highly recommended; get there if you can!

Lots of seating and shade, thanks to umbrellas & trees.

Opportunities to sample local artisan products abound!

Roast pig for you meat lovers!

  1. Hi Carole,

    It was a pleasure to meet and share breakfast with you and Bob recently at Adobe Guadalupe! We are enjoying your blog and will certainly use it as a valuable resource for our next visit to this beautiful corner of the world.

    Please stop by and say hello if you’re ever wandering around the Midwest!

    • Jennifer & Don, we loved meeting you over breakfast and really enjoyed your sense of adventure. Since you are wine purveyors in Missouri, good on you for checking out the ever-developing Baja wine scene! Hope you will help spread the gospel of Baja back home. FYI, we had a fab tasting @ Torres Alegre & visited the Museum that AM. And, don’t worry, my little car is going to serve me well for many travels for years to come! Abrazos, Carole & Bob
