Certified Sommelier and Master Mezcalier now living in Oaxaca where I have an experience of Mezcal And Mole: airbnb.com/mezcalymole with more than 90 reviews. After studying film at in Mexico City, I 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, I discovered I like teaching others about wine as much as I enjoyed drinking it. Nothing makes me happier than finding that Mezcal is as diverse and exciting as the world of wine. Oaxaca has taught me so much about my country and traditions, I love to share the history mythology and all the beautiful and exciting world that is behind the sacred drink Mezcal.

Daniel’s passion took us on an amazing adventure to another land and a hundreds of years old way of life that we never knew existed! This way of life that was almost extinguished, is now becoming an artisanal community more complex than artisanal wines -and we learned how we can be a part of it!!! Super interesting!😃👍👍

Mezcal is fascinating - and I appreciated hearing about the industry and its history from Daniel! I didn't know much about industrially produced mezcal, and I feel like I know how to purchase a quality bottle of mezcal and taste it properly. I'm excited to purchase some of my own mezcal and drink some!

This was great. I did it with family and friends in California, Canada, and UK. Daniel’s experience and enthusiasm went a long way, but it was his personal stories about the depth of the process that made it special.

Daniel was amazing! He is incredibly knowledgable, and managed to convey a huge amount of information in an easy, friendly, engaging way. His personal stories were awesome, and he really took the time to make each of us on the call feel involved. The actual presentation itself was really professionally done, with excellent slides and graphics! Would absolutely recommend to anyone - mezcal lovers or not!

Daniel certainly knows his Mezcal, and many other things. This was more interesting than I expected, and I came away feeling it was better than a class. It felt authentic, knowledgeable, friendly, fun and informative. Definitely worth the 1.5 hours.
