After arriving in Mexcio’s blossoming wine region, the Valle de Guadalupe, in I drove over to the Mogor Badan winery (Carretera Tecate Ensenada Km 86.5), where Drew Deckman, a Georgia born chef who own’s the restaurant Deckman’s in San José del Cabo, set up a seasonal, farm to table bistro under the shade of three tall pine trees at the edge of the vineyard.
There are half a dozen tables, festive strings of light bulbs strewn about, barrels of hay, and an open brick kitchen. Jazz is wafting through the air and there are a couple of dogs running about. The sun drops behind the dusty brown hills and the sky turns from orange to purple to blue. Wine comes out. This is the scene.
