Dear fellow sommeliers,
I am traveling to Mexico in september, arrival in Mexico City on the 1st.
I will be in Oaxaca starting on the 5th of september.
Does anyone want to meet up in the region?
Also are there producers I need to look for?
Thank you in advance
Jan Van Heesvelde

Go to any of the mezcal tasting rooms! Mezcaloteca, Piedra Lumbre, Mezcalogia, et al, are all great starts! A fantastic restaurant and Mezcaleria to check out while you're there: El Destilado. Ask questions at any of those places for recommendations. All super friendly people!
Great info, Ill be in both city as cancun!
Great info, heard about the people being super friendly.
I hope its gonna a be a great trip
Make sure to go to the Mezcal bar In Situ in Oaxaca city.
If you want to try some good mezcal and tequila, visit for dinner: "VILLA MARIA" Restaurant in Mexico City.
It's super cool! Traditional mexican music, traditional food, and a very good experience!
Also, "El Palenquito" is in Mexico City, I recommend it for tasting mezcal
If you need more info. about interesting places in Mexico City, just let me know, I am mexican and I live in this City (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Try to track down some sotol while you're at it. I found some in CDMX. It had a dead rattlesnake in it.
Go see Lala Noguera at Casa Azteco in Mexico City.
Also, make sure you try some Pulque (a semi fermented agave beverage) from a street vendor and huitlacoche tacos!
