from the Ensenada/Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico episode
Filming in Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico was on my to-do list for a long time, so you could imagine how excited I was when Josh reached out to help make that dream a reality! As a tour guide he knows all the ins and outs of the Valle and Ensenada, from world class restaurants, amazing bottles of Nebbiolo, to some of the best roadside fish tacos you'll ever have! Of course there were some hard days along the way but it's nothing a bottle of Côte Rôtie couldn't fix! Come along with Josh and I as we talk behind the scenes of filming and remember why the Valle and Ensenada are so special!

from the Port Episode
Porto is the city that's where the aging and cellaring of Port wine takes place. More importantly, it's such a great town to visit because it's just big enough to keep one entertained, but small enough to navigate. Amazing restaurants, bars, and of course, all the Port houses to visit!
PALÁCIO DA BOLSA
The stunning building you see me in while touring Porto? It's the old stock exchange, the Palácio da Bolsa! This neoclassical 19th century building is worth a stop!
FRANCESINHAS DA BAIXA
It's no trip to Porto without trying their famous sandwich, the Francesinha! Sausage or chorizo or sliced meat between bread, with cheese, beer gravy, and an egg on top - come hungry! We found a great one at Francesinhas Da Baixa.
ROTA DO DOURO
A boat tour is a good move in a wine region that's defined by it's river. We had a great experience with Rota do Douro!
The grapes for Port are grown about an hour and a half inland in the Douro Valley, which is one of the most breathtaking wine regions I've ever seen. There are plenty of wine cellars to visit here as well!
Back in Porto, you can also visit Ferreira Cellars and do a tasting, as well as a great tour of the caves. Plus, learn the history of one of the founder's of the Douro; "Ferreirinha" aka Dona Antónia.
