Event description


FIRST ANNUAL • VALLE Wine & Food Festival

Hosted by: Chef Javier Plascencia, Chef Nancy Silverton, and Carolynn Carreño


In the spirit of celebrity chef food festivals around the world, Baja superstar Chef Javier Plascencia, along with Netflix "Chef's Table" star Nancy Silverton, and Tijuana-born writer Carolynn Carreño, are hosting what promises to be the most exciting (and delicious) day of the year in the Valle de Guadalupe! Be a part of this day-into-evening food and drinks festival under the sun and stars of the magical Valle, featuring over 20 of California and Baja California’s best chefs, local wineries and breweries, celebrated DJs Chucuchu and Lord Valle, Cumbia band Takon Machine, artisan vendors, and as well as live auction, and dancing.


Lay back on stylish, comfortable lounge furniture—shaded from the afternoon sun, and romantically lit in the evening—kick your feet up around an intimate fire pit, enjoy a curated selection of Baja wines and cocktails prepared by your own superstar mixologist… all with a preferred view of the band stage featuring cumbia and norteño bands, celeb Baja DJs, and a live auction. This is the VIP Experience.

An exclusive, private party within the festival, the VIP Experience at the Valle Wine & Food Festival will be quintessential Valle de Guadalupe, a mix of luxury, style, world-class culinary fare, and unparalled organic beauty. The lounge will be constructed for the occasion by celebrated event designer and creator of the Animalón lounge that garnered much media attention, Marianna Idirin. In the lounge, VIP’s will be pampered orchestrated with ttray-passed hors d'oeuvres created by Chef Table stars Dominique Crenn and Nancy Silverton, as well as Javier Plascencia, Josiah Citrin, and others.

In addition to entrance to the VIP lounge, the Experience includes an invitation to the Chefs and Artisans After Party, including a second-round late-night feast by the one and only, Valle Legend, Doña Esthela, as well as a chance to rub elbows, and clink glasses with California’s culinary superstars. Our VIPs will also receive a take-home bag of artisan goodies. Treat yourself to this unique, decadent experience.


We are starting a foundation to benefit the farm workers of the region and their families. These men, women, and children are the heartbeat of the region; they make it all possible. Fundación Campesinos will work to improve the lives of these families, providing shoes, clothing, and blankets, as well as helping to improve living conditions and bringing vocational education to the children.
