My name is Josh. I am the Founder & Owner of Take in Baja & The Grape Underground LLC. I came to California by way of Cleveland, Ohio in 2007. In 2015, while working in Public Service, I created a small start-up business in the wine & food industry. My business focuses on unique wine-centric tours & event experiences both in Valle de Guadalupe Baja California, Mexico & Southern California. I promote Small Family, Boutique & Garagiste wineries through tours and events. The goal of Take in Baja & The Grape Underground is to curate these unforgettable wine experiences for people of all experience and knowledge levels. Whether you're looking for an adventure to the hottest gastronomy scene in the west or a private wine & food event in Southern California, we are your experts to call upon. Let us create the memories that have not yet been made.
