  • 8:30-8:45am: Meet your bilingual culinary guide and driver at the designated meeting point on the US side of the US-Mexico border in San Ysidro, California (Tijuana border crossing). It's an easy drive to the meeting point, or take public transportation (San Diego Trolley), taxi, or Uber (additional pick-ups north of Ensenada available by appointment)
  • 8:45-9:00am: Cross the border on foot with your guide, through Mexican Immigration & Customs, to our tour vehicle waiting on the Mexico side

    • 9:15-10:00am: Make additional stops en-route to Valle de Guadalupe to pick-up additional tour participants as necessary (we can generally accommodate pick-ups in Tijuana, Rosarito Beach, La Misión, North Ensenada, Valle de Guadalupe, and surrounding areas) 
  • 10:30-11:30am: At the Valle de Guadalupe's premier artisan cheese monger, taste from a variety of expertly prepared and carefully aged local cheeses, cold-pressed organic olive oils, cured olives, salsas, and house-made marmalades (name withheld - some places we keep secret to preserve their small business charm)
  • 11:30-12:00pm: Drive to Lechuza Winery
  • 12:00-1:30pm: Enjoy five artisan wines while noshing on local artisan cheeses and organic cold-pressed olive oil right in the vineyards at Lechuza Winery, which has been selected by the French Laundry in Napa for their Mexican wine list
  • 1:30-2:00pm: Drive to Finca Altozano
  • 2:00-3:30pm: Sit down for an expertly curated multi-course campestre-style gourmet lunch served "al fresco" overlooking the vineyards at Finca Altozano, an outdoor eatery by James Beard nominated celebrity Chef Javier Plascencia (tasting menu share plates served family style; non-alcoholic beverage included; local wine & beer available for extra purchase; blankets available if it's chilly)
  • 3:30-4:00pm: Drive to Vena Cava Winery
  • 4:00-5:00pm: Taste five artisan small-batch wines and organic cold-pressed olive oil at Vena Cava Winery; tour the unique winemaking facilities at this one-of-a-kind architectural marvel
  • 5:00-6:30pm: Tummy full, and pleasantly buzzed, sit back and enjoy the picturesque drive back to the border in Tijuana, Mexico (interim drop-off stop(s) en route to border and stop for restrooms as necessary; your guide will drop you off directly in front of the entry to the pedestrian border crossing where you will cross by foot back into the U.S.)
  • 6:30-7:30pm: After clearing U.S. immigration and customs, walk back to your car parked in San Ysidro, California, or catch the San Diego Trolley, taxi, or Uber (arrival time in San Ysidro is highly dependent on the actual border wait time, which varies - BTK has no ability to affect actual border wait time)
