Campo, vino, deportes y familia. Una vendimia muy completa
By Sandra Rios
This Saturday, August 23, the Second Harvest Festival will be held at Rancho La Santísima Trinidad, named for its production of three products: lavender, olives, and grapes.
This event will feature traditional harvest festivities, such as grape stomping, tasting in the wine cellar, and carriage and bike rides. The food will be paella, meat roasted on a brochette, and a complimentary drink. A boutique hotel will be opened on this day, along with a polo space of 400 square meters of grass, approved by Miguel Gómez de Parada, principal of the Polo School of Mexico, in Mexico City. Fourteen first-level polo players, six Argentinians and eight Mexicans, will attend the festival.
The polo players will be playing on the court on Friday, with the final game taking place on Saturday at 6pm. Among the highlights will be Jazz Manouche from Guanajuato—just back from a tour in France—local circus artists, mojigangas, flamenco guitar, and a DJ at the end of the polo game. The evening will end with a showing of the movie Cinema Paradiso. Ice creams from Dolores Hidalgo, organic coffee, cigars, hats, and lavender soaps will be for sale during the festival. Event sponsors include Heineken, Land Rover, State Tourism, and the Municipality of Dolores Hidalgo.
