Spirits of Mexico: A Día de los Muertos Winemaker Dinner

November 2, 2023 @ 9:00 pm - November 3, 2023 @ 1:00 am

Meet renowned winemaker Daniel Lonnberg at a five-course Mexican feast benefiting local artists in honor of Día de los Muertos

Celebrate life and support local artists at a very special wine experience during Signia by Hilton San Jose’s inaugural Día de los Muertos Celebration!

Embark on a taste journey through Mexico at this five-course feast created by the Signia San Jose culinary team, which pairs perfectly with wines from the vineyards of Baja. A cocktail reception featuring Dobel Tequila and 400 Conejos Mezcal tastings and cocktails kicks off the evening with live music and optional face painting stations.

Raise a glass with Daniel Lonnberg, considered one of the best winemaking consultants in Mexico, currently making wine for some of the country’s top brands including Adobe Guadalupe, Hilo Negro, Norte 32 and Emeve, as well as his own boutique project, Vinsur.

A portion of the proceeds from the dinner benefits Local Color, a San Jose-based women-powered artists’ organization that builds equitable pathways for creatives to thrive.

Guests are encouraged to dress in festive attire, and enter to win hand-painted wine and spirit bottles by Local Color’s founder and executive director, artist Erin Salazar.
