What you'll do

(Vegetarian option) In a cozy and traditional place, we will taste 7 types of moles and seven different Mezcales. Get a framework for how to think about mezcal, in a way that regular tastings and visits to local mezcal bars do not offer. Try seven handcrafted moles of Oaxaca, all in a single experience. The tasting contains all the educational values ​​of a Sommelier wine tasting, as well as the space to ask all you want. The Mezcales that you will try are carefully selected as they differentiate the characteristics of the different Agaves: Espadin, Cuishe, Madre Cuishe, Tobala, Tepeztate, Arroqueño, and a blend. It is an educational and pleasant-tasting paired with a different mole for each mezcal.
Ask and discuss your impressions, share and meet people that want to enjoy the Mezcal experience at a different level.

Certified Sommelier Daniel Rodriguez Gonzalez is a
filmmaker, seasoned traveller, historian, and enthusiast of life. His passion for wine began as a child while listening to his grandfather tell stories of making wine in Spain; from his first sip at age 12, he knew wine had many stories to tell. After studying film at in Mexico City, he began to travel the world, documenting stories as diverse as shamanic practices in México or walking 500 miles crossing Spain doing the Way of Saint James.
Working at a wine bar in Madrid, and later as Tasting Room Manager at Texas’ Spicewood Vineyards, he discovered he liked teaching others about wine as much as he enjoyed drinking it. Nothing makes him happier today than finding that Mezcal is as diverse and exciting as the world of wine.

The whole experience was absolutely magical. The mole and mezcal exceeded my high expectations, but the best part of the experience was Daniel himself. He is so passionate, kind, and knowledgeable. The location is beautiful as well. If you are considering booking do not hesitate. I would say this is a must do in Oaxaca. Worth traveling here just for this experience. I could not recommend it more.

You must do this experience when you’re in Oaxaca. The mezcales are great, and Daniel is incredibly knowledgeable and approachable. I felt like I could ask him any question. As for the moles, I found myself scraping the bowl each time to get the last bit. The moles he serves are actually better than most of the moles I’ve had in local restaurants!

Our group of six from Cincinnati and Chicago had a wonderful experience with Daniel’s Mezcal y Mole tasting in San Felipe. It was comfortable, well-planned, prepared, and executed, and a perfect way to introduce our group to the Oaxacan food scene. Daniel has a great sense of humor, charming stories, and our group felt like we all left with lots of information to share!
