BECOMING A TEQUILA CONNOISSEUR

By

In our last blog, we recommended Uncork Mexico as the perfect way to discover some of the amazing wines being produced in Mexico. But truly, no visit to Puerto Vallarta is complete without spending some time with our most famous export – Tequila!

Of course, you can and should visit the friendly bartenders at Signature Lounge and Residences Sky Bar by Pinnacle any night of the week to enjoy Puerto Vallarta’s best Happy Hour set against a stunning sunset view, who will gladly help you with some top shelf Tequila suggestions. But for more in-depth Tequila experience, our Pinnacle Resorts concierge team recommends Vallarta Tequila Tastings.

Join Vallarta Tequila Tastings in their venue or book them for a private tasting in the comfort of your luxury accommodations in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone. Their knowledgeable Tequila Master will guide you through the rich history of Tequila making in Mexico and help you identify the subtle flavors and sophistication of a variety of specially selected bottles.

A private Puerto Vallarta Tequila tasting with Vallarta Tequila Tastings is the ideal way to become a Tequila connoisseur during your Puerto Vallarta luxury vacation, so that you can return home to education your friends that fine Tequila is much more than shooters and regrettable decisions.

DISCOVERING MEXICAN WINES

By

The famous Happy Hours at Signature Lounge and Residences Sky Bar by Pinnacle are truly ideal for enjoying top shelf drinks accompanied by a stunning Puerto Vallarta sunset every night of the week during your luxury vacation in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone at Resorts by Pinnacle. But if you are a wine-lover and interested in learning more about the burgeoning wine industry in Mexico, you may be interested in having a more immersive experience with some of the amazing vintages now being produced in our country. Uncork Mexico is the Pinnacle Resorts Concierge recommendation for wine buffs to discover new favorites while vacationing in Puerto Vallarta.

Uncork Mexico features exclusive wine tastings in Puerto Vallarta, both in a group setting or in the privacy of your Puerto Vallarta vacation rental at Resorts by Pinnacle. Owned by two engaging and knowledgeable Puerto Vallarta residents, hailing from Mexico and Brazil, Uncork Mexico travels extensively throughout the three major wine regions in Mexico to source incredible bottles of chenin blanc, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and viognier for white wine fans, and Bordeaux varietals, Grenache, tempranillo, dolcetto, syrah and petite sirah for those that prefer reds. They also have marvelous selections of rosé and bubbles to satisfy all interests and offer artisan cheese and chocolate tastings to enhance your wine tasting experience.

Though Mexico is best known for Tequila, and to a lesser extent, mezcal and raicilla, Mexican wines are gaining respect with wine connoisseurs and sommeliers across the globe. Whether a private wine tasting on your Pinnacle Resorts terrace or a group tasting in one of Uncork Mexico’s venues, which are all within easy walking distance, a Puerto Vallarta wine tasting is a wonderful addition to any Pinnacle Resorts vacation. Talk to your concierge for more information.
