Itinerary Description:

Indulge in the flavors of Mexico on our eight-day Mexico Culinary Tour. Among your delicious experiences: learn the tequila-making process first-hand, walk through vineyards, and pick fresh ingredients to prepare an authentic Mexican meal with a local chef.

Ker & Downey’s Mexico Culinary Tour is designed to stimulate your taste buds with the unforgettable food and drinks of the region. From taco stands to fine dining, you will be immersed in the colorful folklore and savory traditions of Mexico, beginning with the chili salsas and smoky chipotles of San Miguel de Allende, and concluding in Tequila, Jalisco, for a plethora of private tequila and wine tastings.

Start your Mexico culinary tour in the air over historic San Miguel de Allende on your own private hot air balloon flight. From here you will visit the home of one of the finest premium tequilas and enjoy a private tasting. The history and lore of San Miguel are intertwined with Mexico´s Independence Movement, and the spirit of freedom of expression has continued in the lively creative enclave of modern San Miguel. The highlight of the beautiful downtown district is a beautiful neo-gothic Church, the Parroquita de San Miguel Arcángel. Experience it all from the comforts of the Rosewood San Miguel de Allende located in the heart of town.

You will also tour a local market and chat with the farmers who bring their fresh fruits, herbs, cheese, flowers, and chilies to sell. Make your way to Cuna de Tierra to walk through a family-run vineyard producing close to 70,000 bottles of wine a year. Learn how to grow the perfect grape and climb the tower to get a bird's eye view of the area. Tour the barrel room and wine production area before enjoying a gourmet, multi-course Mexican lunch paired with award winning wines. Tie on an apron and participate in a cooking class hosted in a local vineyard, and share a meal with your chef host afterward.

Spend a full day mixing the delicious with the divine as you enjoy a private, customized tour of local artisan studios and workshops, ending in the evening with a private tasting and dinner at a nearby vineyard.

Next on your Mexico Culinary Tour, travel to the town of Tequila with a stay at the charming hotel Solar de Las Animas, set at the foot of the volcano that presides over the village. Wander around this picturesque place and then learn how to be a master tequilero by combining different flavors and scents by making your own personal blend in a bottle.

The fifth generation tequilero will take you on a private tour and tasting in his agave fields. Dine on lunch in the village’s market and then visit a boutique distillery. Your taste of Mexico concludes with a day of history, exploring the archaeological wonders of the Guachimontones Pyramids and enjoying the unique rodeo culture and traditional Mexican food of the local Charro horsemen at a nearby hacienda.

This hand-crafted itinerary can also be paired with Mexico’s other food and wine hotspots, such as Puebla, Mexico City, and the Valley of Guadalupe. No matter the destination or delicious desire, Ker & Downey can make your dreams of a luxury Mexico culinary tour come true.
