    I went back after 20 years!!!
    We went here on a bday vacation trip after touring some of the city. I remember ending up at Rancho Verano on spring break in 2005 with friends from college. It was the best experience of the week that week and also the highlight of our return trip in 2023. All of the tequila tasting was fantastic and I bought way too many bottles. Our guide was great, down to earth, and born in CA (NINERS FAN!!!). You definitely need to take this tour!

    Great boutique family distillery
    Great time at Don Chendo distillery and restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed the description of agave harvesting and process to turn the pina into tequila. Tasting was fun — blanco, reposado, anejo and extra anejo sampled. All excellent. Then three amazing flavored styles, sort of a mocha, almond, and pecan cream. No pressure to buy. Reasonably priced for small batch. Followed by a great lunch, also reasonably priced with large portions. All is outside, but you are up in the mountains so cooler than down in PV.

    Authentic artisanal distillery deep in the mountains of Jalisco
    If you love history, authentic experiences, meeting and learning from locals, and are (or want to become) a tequila aficionado, visit Rancho Verano (Summer's Ranch)! There are seven varieties of distilled spirits from various kinds of agave. They are all unique and delicious. At the restaurant, you choose the meat you want (chicken, beef, fish) and they grill it to your taste. It's a bit of a trek to get here through rough roads but well worth the effort!

Great place to visit. The food is great and so are the people. A must visit!! The tequila tasting is a great thing to do. The education of how it’s made here is unreal.
