Baco Fest, the gastronomic festival based around wine and cheese, returns with its 12th edition this March 17, 18 and 19 at the Ángela Peralta Theater in Polanco.
The event organized by Wine Not (a Mexican company specializing in wine experiences and directed by sommelier Ives Szclar) will feature tastings and sales of wines from a variety of wineries, ranging from emerging importers to the most famous in Mexico and around the world.
Vendors at Baco Fest will also offer delicious bites, fine cheeses, artisan bread, olive oils, jams, charcuterie, gourmet and organic products, among others. Some of the restaurants confirmed for this edition are Casa D’Amico, with its menu of Italian food and wines, and La Polanqueña specializing in international cuisine with Mexican touches.
In addition to tastings and free corkage of wines purchased during the festival, attendees will be treated to artistic and cultural experiences such as grape stomping, bottle recycling workshops, painting with wine, and an open-air play. There will also be lectures on the world of wine, both for oenophiles and amateur connoisseurs, and even a bazaar of handicrafts, fashion, and jewelry. All this in a fun family and pet friendly atmosphere, with incredible live music and a special activity area for children.
Admission to the festival is free. Hours are from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. There is a welcome kit available for purchase for $240MXN, which includes a commemorative glass, five wine tastings at any booth, and a tote bag. We recommend you purchase your tickets early on the official website, as space is limited.
