Wine culture will be a flagship in San Miguel de Allende, stated mayor Mauricio Trejo
San Miguel de Allende.- Mauricio Trejo pointed out that work has started so that the wine culture in San Miguel de Allende becomes one of the flagships of this important travel destination.
“San Miguel de Allende consolidates as the epicenter of wine culture in central Mexico”, said mayor Mauricio Trejo Pureco.
With the launch of the education program for Superior technicians in sustainable farming for wine culture, developed by the Technological University of San Miguel de Allende (UTSMA); continuing with the vision that started in 2012, the mayor Mauricio Trejo pointed out that San Miguel de Allende is going back to its ancestral roots in terms of viniculture; which covers all stages of the wine production chain.
Trejo recalled that in the previous administration he presided, the roadmap for making viniculture a flagship in San Miguel de Allende was started.
“ Not only do we have beautiful vineyards, but we have hotels within the vineyards. The wine industry brought the opportunity for the wedding-travel expansion and today we are the number one wedding destination in the country. It was worth it to push this sector. We are the viniculture epicenter of the state of Guanajuato and the Bajío region. In terms of tourism, San Miguel de Allende is considered Guanajuato’s window to the world”, he continued.
Now that the program for Superior technician in sustainable agriculture for viniculture is running, young college students in San Miguel de Allende and the state of Guanajuato have a great opportunity for academic formation; another option for a mayor in enology or specialized agronomy.
On this subject, Trejo Pureco pointed out that public policy in his administration is to reorganize the economy around the whole Guanajuato territory so that the main activity becomes enotourism.
“ We must regionalize the economies. We are 46 municipalities or districts, but only 10 or 12 of these generate a large economy, San Miguel de Allende, Dolores Hidalgo, Comonfort and San Luis de la Paz; must be promoted as destinations for wine lovers, that can be visited by all Mexicans and citizens from all over the world”, stated the Mayor.
From the “Dos Buhos” vineyard, where the new program was announced, Mauricio Trejo recognized support from the state government, particularly from the governor Diego Sinhue and departments such as tourism, education and sustainable economic development so that San Miguel can be the leader in diverse economies.
Finally, the mayor mentioned that San Miguel de Allende is about to create a partnership with two very important worldwide viniculture economies. Although he did not name the regions, he stated that this will detonate the industry, certifying the quality of San Miguel’s vineyards at the international level.
With a diverse economy, promoted by municipal government, that reaches the central region of the country and contributes to the quality of life of its citizens- San Miguel de Allende is getting better day by day.
