Facades full of color, cobbled streets, colonial architecture, delicious gastronomy and the warmth of its people, these are just some of the characteristics of San Miguel de Allende, in the heart of Mexico.
Tradition is already part of San Miguel de Allende, however, the city always reinvents itself and offers new experiences, one of them, which was not its primary activity until a few years ago, is wine production that thanks to its warm climate and large tracts of land have made its vineyards part of the enological route in the region.
The wine region has four roads: Guanajuato, Querétaro, Celaya and Dolores Hidalgo. Here we present the Wine Route.
