A day at Decantos winery can best be explained as “mind blowing”. At first glance, this place seems to be almost more on the commercial side as far as Mexico’s wineries go. However, this family run winery couldn’t be anything further from a commercial establishment. They simply just built it right!
I travel down into Mexico on a weekly basis more or less and even after completing hundreds of trips I am still constantly asked by my friends the same question. “Is it safe down there?” My obvious answer is usually something like “well of course”. After going this many times I have become so comfortable that I’ve grown ignorant to the possible dangers. But is it even dangerous? Sure I’ve heard the tragic horror stories portrayed through the U.S. media but I have yet to experience anything worse than a simple $20 bribe from a police officer to keep an intoxicated friend who was driving from going to jail. But real actual danger? Not even close. In fact I feel safer south of the border than I do in my hometown of San Diego.
