Why You Should Experience Wine Tasting in Cabo San Lucas at Least Once in Your Life

There are so many things you can do in Cabo. You can try out all the water sports activities, sunbathe, snorkel, scuba dive, parasail, drink rare batches of tequila, and go to a wine tasting event.
While you do not associate wine with Mexico, as it is most famous for tequila, the industry is estimated to be worth $14 million in 2018 and still growing. While tequila is produced in Jalisco, Michoacán, Nayarit, and Guanajuato, 90% of the wine production in Mexico comes from Guadalupe Valley.
