During mid-October 2020, I was fortunate enough to have the titles of "Official Tour Guide, Boom Mic Operator, Lighting Assistant & Logistics Coordinator" bestowed upon me by my good friend Vince Anter of "V is for Vino" for the Ensenada episode that will be on Season Three of the show. V is for Vino is the #1 streaming wine, food & travel show that incorporates an incredible educational perspective. The show gives the consumer a great overview and some in depth coverage of exciting travel destinations around the world.

Valle de Guadalupe or VDG for short, is located in the Municipality of Ensenada Baja California, Mexico.
