Note From Alan and Debra - Each year as peak season in Los Cabos winds down, we understandably receive fewer articles and events (send more, please :). In order to help make the Baja Western Onion shorter and easier to use (something we're always striving for), we're going to look for little ways this summer to "shorten your read." Beginning this week, articles that would normally appear in a seperate Misc. For Sale Section will now be merged with the News And Events section.

We hope you like the change. As always, please feel free to write us at Moderator [- at -] BajaWesternOnion.com and let us know what you think. - Best Regards, Alan and Debra - The Baja Western Onion

News and Events, Questions and Answers, Food And Fun, For Sale and Wanted

Thank You To All The Supporters Of Gastrovino 2013! - The Second Annual GastroVino, Baja Food and Wine Festival was a resounding success. Thanks to the generous attendees of last Sunday's Festival we raised over 30,000 pesos through the Subasta Silenciosa, 100% of which will be donated equally to the DIF and our Volunteer Bomberos.

We want to thank the Municipio for their support, all the volunteers who made this incredible event happen, all the talented winemakers who came to visit our Pueblo Mágico and of course, our beloved local Restauranteurs who once again proved the enduring and ever-improving quality of our local Gastronomy.

The best White Wine Award went to the Chenin Blanc of Cavas Valmar, the best Red Wine Award went to Vinos Shimul who produces an excellent Nebbiolo, Sangiovese and Misión-based wine, and of course, last but not least, our very own Sierra Laguna Vineyards, the winner of the Best Rosé! All wines are available at La Bodega de Todos Santos on Calle Hidalgo. We look forward to being with you for the 3rd Annual! - Gastro Vino, festival [- at -] gastrovino.mx, www.gastrovino.mx, 612 152 0181, 612 176 1910, Baja California Sur
