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.

Outstanding introduction to a liquor we had not tasted before and would not have known how to appreciate. History. Production information. Industrial vs artisanal.

I thought I knew something about mezcal and tequila before I went on this experience but Daniel opened my eyes to so much about the varieties, the history, the social aspects, and more. Daniel is the Willy Wonka of mezcal and he took me on a magical journey. It was a master class and he presents the information in an accessible and entertaining way. I can't wait to explore and experience the different types of mezcal he shared.

We had such a fun time. Daniel was both informative and fun. We came out knowing a ton more about mezcal, how it's made. Daniel was truly and expert and I look forward to learning more about the artisan brands.

ワインとメスカル両方のソムリエなので、ワインに例えてメスカルを解説してくることでいろいろメスカルのことを理解できた。 Since he is sommelier of wine and mezcal, I got points of mezcal comparison with wine.

This is a really fun history lesson into the creation of Mezcal. Daniel has a ton of personality and made the whole experience really enjoyable. I can’t wait to visit Oaxaca in person someday!
