UNLIMITED PALATE EXPERIENCES
The celebration of the grape harvest in the Querétaro Wine Region usually fills with expectations and options to visit the state during the summer, as the great artistic and musical shows, gastronomic shows, tours of vineyards, tastings and traditional treading of grapes, which are performed along the Art, Cheese and Wine Route, they became a great attraction for tourists in search of flavor and fun.
Although the circumstances derived from the pandemic have limited these activities, the Secretariat of Tourism of the State of Querétaro has exceeded those limits to bring everyone the possibility of a complete experience from the comfort and safety of your home: the Gastrofest, a novel proposal to enjoy the valuable flavors of Querétaro, virtually.
GastroFest intends to be a festival made to measure for you, in which you can enjoy in the same way that you do in person in an event of this nature: you can set aside your place in the location if you want to walk through these wonderful spaces to taste the delicious gastronomic proposals that will be offered, or, visit the place virtually through the live broadcasts that will take place on Facebook Live of @Travel and Food MX; If you like to taste a Tequesquipense red wine, you will not walk or travel to the vineyard, but through a single click. You can taste the flavors in incredible packages prepared by the associations, vineyards and cheese factories of the Ruta Arte, Queso y Vino de Querétaro, with the aim of achieving for you a round experience.
The Querétaro Wine Growers Association and its associated vineyards, the hotel sector, the restaurant sector, cheese producers, artisans and both traditional cooks and experienced chefs participate in this project, all to offer you a special experience during a weekend, which includes surprises and gifts for you.
As in a traditional vintage, you will have access to musical and artistic shows, tastings with expert sommeliers, pairings by renowned chefs, connoisseurs of Queretaro wines and gastronomy, workshops, and everything you can enjoy, with the same quality, but in this time, virtually.
