Since 2016, Owner of The Wine Pub, Sandy Hanshaw—in collaboration with Baja Wine + Food’s Fernando Gaxiola—has organized intimate, sold out tours across the border to uncover Mexico’s wine country, Valle de Guadalupe. Today, the much-loved Point Loma wine bar announces its expansion to explore Tijuana and Ensenada’s booming craft beer and street food scene.

“Both Fernando and I are very passionate about Mexico’s culinary diversity,” says Hanshaw. “We’ve loved planning quick trips across the border for the wine enthusiast and now we look forward to providing a new opportunity for those beer enthusiasts.”

The first trip is scheduled for Saturday, September 22. Guests will depart from The Wine Pub for a cross-border journey in mini buses. Notable stops include:

  • A taco vs. tostada showdown in Tijuana
  • Walkthrough at Mercado Hidalgo to experience Tijuana’s local culture and fresh produce
  • Uncover why Anthony Bourdain called Ensenada’s La Guerrerense “the best street cart in the world”
  • Fish tacos at the iconic El Fenix
  • Brewery tour and beer tastings at Cervecería Agua Mala and Wendlandt Cervecería
  • Dinner by the water at Popotla Fisherman’s Village
  • Evening sips at Plaza Fiesta’s craft beer garden
