EsperanzArte: a High Spirits Celebration

This was EsperanzArte’s 5th annual event, but my first year attending. It was hosted by one of Los Cabos finest luxury residences, Esperanza- An Auberge resort Collection.

This “wine and dine” evening was abundant in inspiration and variety, where some of the finest local chefs came together with incredible Mexican artists, live band Déjà vu and D.J Jauregui.

We were surrounded by creativity at every corner, whether it was admiring the fantastic art, feasting on the incredible cuisine or sipping on creative cocktail pairings EsperanzArte truly showcased Mexican skill at its best.

This year’s event honored the iconic “Agave” plant and “El Jimador”.

While walking around all the beautiful art, there was a special feature you could not miss, of a Jimador working during the event. We learned that a Jimador is a farmer that harvests agave plants, which are used to make Mescal and Tequila. This starts by finding ripe agave, between 8 and 12 years. The Jimador was using a special tool called the “Coa de Jima”, a flat-blade at the end of a long pole, to cut off all of the external spiky leaves of the plant, leaving only the pulpy center (called the Pina). They then cooked it in preparation for the Mezcal production, a true artisan craft not yet lost.

I’ve had the pleasure of going to many fantastic events in Los Cabos but this is not one to be missed with abounding attention to detail.
