Okay, so I’ve been in Oaxaca a few days. It’s my first return since August and like a swallow returning to Capistrano, I always have a sense of rebirth when I return. Perhaps it is the sun, or the people, but in any event, returning as I do annually after […]
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.
**Updated below** You’re in Oaxaca and as you walk around the streets and in the markets, people keep offering you samples of this wonderful elixir called mezcal. It seems as if you can’t go 50 feet without encountering one of those small booths where the pretty girls are begging you […]
Brand… Real Matlatl Category… Reposado Origin… Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca Tasting Notes… Clean/golden straw color with a pleasant nose and some minor heat. A little smoke blanketing some berry aromas with delicate flavors [no heat on entry and very smooth]. As can be expected, there is some wood and some smoke […]
Your sick and tired of always visiting the family on your vacation. The kids are finally gone and you want to get away to someplace fun, exciting, and not too expensive. The problem is, where should you go? It’s a question people frequently ask, and yet sadly, many will never […]
A semi regular feature of Dave Miller’s Mexico… a few quick reads about Mexico that showed up around the net during the last week. We don’t endorse them, and we may not even agree with them, we just share them. Enjoy! NAFTA: 20 Years of Regret for Mexico… Mark Weisbrot, […]
Brand… Sombra Category… Joven Espadin ~ 45%ABV Origin… San Juan del Rio, Oaxaca Tasting Notes… Very pure with a mineral quality possessing some nice citrus (lime zest) character. Incredibly light and delicate […]
Historically the last few days before Christmas are when a large chunk of America gets engaged in the buying spirit. As millions of people frantically spend the last hours before the red suited jolly guy comes sliding down the chimney looking for that perfect gift, millions more will be preoccupied […]
I’d like to introduce you to Ed Draves, the newest member to Dave Miller’s Mexico. Ed comes to us with over 20 years in the wine industry. I met Ed a couple of years ago when he served with me in Oaxaca. We soon learned that we had a similar […]
Coffee in the barrio? Yes please… But not just any barrio. I’m talking about El Barrio Jalatlaco, the oldest neighborhood in the city of Oaxaca. Jalatlaco is one of the mostly hidden gems of the city, given it’s almost 12 block walk from the tourist center of this great city. […]
I first met the award winning Erick [Almamezcalera] Rodriguez out at one of the many mezcal palenques in Oaxaca. For the uninitiated, that’s a place where mezcal is made and bottled. Think of it as a distillery. I was taking a tour and Erick was there to share his ability to […]
