Oaxaca and Mezcal go together like… well, let’s just say their tight! While you can get mezcal in other parts of the country, Oaxaca is ground zero for this trending 500 year old spirit. For the last 18 years, mezcaleros from across the state and mezcal enthusiasts from around the […]
Who knew over 20 years ago when Dave Miller first visited Mexico that it would become his adopted country.
Since that first visit, Dave has facilitated hundreds of groups traveling in Mexico. It takes a special person to be able to bridge the divide between the to cultures. Equally at home in the typical suburban three bedroom home in the United States or the small block home in a village in Mexico, Dave is that guy.
For the family who has never traveled in Mexico, to the person who is ready to venture off the typical tourist trail and explore something new, Dave Miller's Mexico brings a unique perspective. It is a perspective gleaned from years of travel and experiences that few will ever match.
Join him on his journey and experience Mexico as few have, step by step as he seeks to share the culture, the art, the food and the richest resource of all, the people of Mexico with you.

We’ve been asked many times how we do our mezcal tastings. So let’s pull the curtain back a little and give you the skinny. First, all of our tastings are done by Ed Draves. Ed has spent many years in the wine business, selling, buying, tasting and everything in between. […]
People from Mexico City dismiss it. Folks from the rest of the country can’t resist it. And it’s on many “must see” lists if people are visiting the sprawling Mexico City, now […]
I’ve known Chef Pilar Cabrera for a few years now and consider her a real friend. Since I first joined her and a group of about 10 others in a […]
A few years ago I found myself in search of some great lechero [coffee with milk and poured from on high] in the city of Xalapa, or Jalapa, depending on where […]
I first met Clayton Szczech of Experience Tequila a few years back when I was visiting the palenque of Alberto Morales and Wahaka Mezcal in San Dionesio Ocotepec. Little did I know that day that he was known as the Evangelist of Tequila! After a tour that included the fields […]
