Restaurant Report: Discover Baja - Malva

Photo credit:

I don't think Robert Alcocer's restaurant, Malva, gets the recognition for excellence it deserves.  W. Scott Koenig's report should start to provide a remedy for that situation.

August 10 - Update: Other than a few pictures of smoke posted on various social media sites, I have not seen any additional reports about this fire.  I'm hopeful that the expression, "No news is good news" applies here.

Cinthia SZ posted these pictures on Facebook at approximately 3:30 PM today.  She reports that the fire is located behind Hacienda Guadalupe.

Camping and Scary Movies - October 28

Camping and watching scary movies.  This sounds like the plot most of the horror movies I watched as a kid.

New Project: Agua de Vid

By chance I stumbled upon Agua de Vid's Facebook page.  Apparently the project will include a boutique hotel, a restaurant/bar, a spa, an event space, and a wine shop.

You can see what they are planning here:

Casa Colorada

Today's winery list addition is Casa Colorada

Shout Out: NBC Latino - Valle de Guadalupe

Animalón by Rebeka Sager
Most of the obvious places are mentioned in this article, but it's cool to see that Sager interviewed people who have a lot of first hand knowledge about the Valle.

Guadalupe Valley Fest 2017 Line-up Announced

Boom!  The Guadalupe Valley Festival announced their musical line-up today and I gotta say I'm very impressed with the music performers on the bill.  (Also bummed we will be in Portland that weekend.)

Don Tomás Viñedo and Corazon del Valle

I'm well aware of the fact that my lists of wineries and restaurants in the Valle are woefully incomplete, so this week I'm going to work on them.  They will still be incomplete, but hopefully not as woeful.

First up, an addition to both lists - Don Tomás Viñedo and its restaurant Corazon del Valle.

They also have a restaurant on site headed by Chef Ismael Pérez
