President Felipe Calderón has officially inaugurated Baja California’s Wine Museum, Museo del Vino.
Calderon also announced a $3.8 million fund for Mexico’s wine region, Guadalupe Valley, reports the UT San Diego. He said he hopes the museum and fun will bring more tourism to the region, as well as acknowledgement for the country’s wines.
“We want this to truly become one of most visited regions of Mexico,” Calderón said in the inauguration.
Some of the highlights of the museum include interactive displays, meeting rooms, and an outdoor amphitheater to teach the public about Guadalupe Valley’s wines. The region produces more than 90 percent of the country’s wine.
Also taking place in this region during the president’s visit is the Fiestas de la Vendimia, Baja California’s annual harvest celebration that lasts through Aug. 19 and includes concerts, dinners, and wine tastings at the different wineries.
