Meet Ricardo (aka Lobo)

Vallarta’s Tequila Specialist and Your Guide for Tequila Tastings

A native of the state of Michoacán, Ricardo has traveled extensively in Mexico to study tequila’s origins and sample its subtleties as created by small, artisanal producers.  He notes that the appreciation of tequila in its many forms is a growing trend for people who love good food and drink.

“Tequila has been a staple of Mexican civilization since the Pre-Columbian era,” says Ricardo with pride. “It is my privilege to conduct tastings for groups or individuals who already enjoy tequila or for those seeking an introduction to this iconic spirit.”

“Growing up in the United States, I only experienced tequila as party drink that you’d drink in a shot glass,” says Ricardo.  “Not until I moved here to Puerto Vallarta in Jalisco – the “Tequila Capital” – did I realize just how sophisticated this spirit was.  I learned how to slowly savour the tastes, textures and aromas of the many varieties of tequila and mezcal”
