Now in its fifth year, Club Tengo Hambre’s very own version of Thanksgiving is now a tradition all its own
Thanksgiving, in our minds, is the most beautiful of American holidays. Non political, non religious, its magic is in its simplicity—expressions of gratitude, surrounding yourself with the people you care about + celebrating it all with a feast.
A few years ago, we had an epiphany. Thanksgiving isn’t a rigid tradition, it’s a spirit.
Finca Altozano, Valle de Guadalupe
In the most picturesque of settings, with views of both the vineyards and the surrounding mountains, we’ll enjoy Chef Javier Plascencia's reinterpretation of the classic American holiday through his regional Mexican lens at his Valle de Guadalupe ranch, Finca Altozano.
THE RENDEZVOUS POINT (with transporation option)
We meet on the US side of the border, in front of the McDonalds at the San Ysidro Trolley station. We walk into Tijuana as a group, pass through Mexican customs, then meet our private transportation on the other side. Once aboard, we welcome everyone w/ a mezcal tasting sourced directly to CTH from distillers in Guerrero, Mexico.
Meeting Spot: 727 E San Ysidro Blvd, San Ysidro, CA 92173
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
CTH's wine country outings to the Valle de Guadalupe are small, intimate gatherings.While our outings are a casual affair, one might feel a tad underdressed going with informal attire in Mexico’s wine country, as Mexicans dress to the nines while visiting Baja California wineries. Step up your sartorial game to ‘Valle chic’ if you want to blend in. Men wear button up shirts and woman rock blouses or dresses. While the Valle is rustic, with uneven dirt paths at many of the wineries, many Mexicans choose fashion over function, and dress shoes, heels and wedges are more common than not in El Valle
