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.

Brand… Wahaka Category… Joven Espadin Origin… San Dionesio Ocotepec, Oaxaca Tasting Notes… Sweet nose with very little heat, signature mineral character joined by pleasant citrusy notes with a touch of smoke on the aftertaste that went on for several minutes.
