What you'll do

In a cosy and traditional place, we will taste 7 type 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. Its 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 tasting at Daniel’s was a superb way to experience Oaxaca. Daniel is so knowledgeable and is a great teacher when it comes to mezcal and mole. His home was lovely, the food & drink were delicious, and the overall experience was very fun!

We didn't quite know what to expect from the experience but since we love both Mezcal and Molé we figured it couldn't possibly go wrong. And we were right. Daniel is a wonderful guide through both worlds, and with his skills derived from his education as a sommelier has taken this tasting course to the next level. We learned more about Mezcal and Molé than ever before, experienced new tastes and combinations we'd never imagined, and on top of it all, felt like we made new a friend in Daniel.

Muy bonita experiencia. Súper rico probar diferentes mezcales y notar cómo cambian los sabores cuando se combinan con diferentes mezcales. La pasamos muy bien con Daniel y el restaurante El Ancestral, de lujo.

This is a must do in Oaxaca City ! A city known for its mole and array of Mezcals, you get to try it all here ! An adorable restaurant that is worthwhile staying afterwards for dinner (so come with a empty belly). Daniel is kind and passionate about the process and pairing. The mezcal was tasteful and the moles were delicious. Try the fish and bone marrow ! Wonderful experience !
