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.

I selected Daniel's experience for my partner's birthday, and he loved it!! Daniel's expertise about and passion for artisanal mezcal was evident, and we both learned a lot! Daniel helped me find a good mezcal for the tasting. Throughout he was personable and informative, and the accompanying visuals were well incorporated.

Daniel has a very unique insight to Mezcal and the history behind it all. We enjoyed every moment learning about the plants, culture, history, and more. If you don’t like Mezcal, take this class and you’ll learn to love it!
