Getting to Know Mexican Wine and Russian History


“Vino-Tourism” by Steve Dryden


Russian wine maker and grape grower David Bibayoff will present his wine and Russian Molokan history during a special evening of wine and gourmet delights on September 7th, at Chabert’s Restaurant in Rosarito Beach, Baja California, Mexico. Come and experience a rare opportunity to learn about the community of Russian Molokan immigrants who moved into Guadalupe Valley around 1905.


In addition to good wine and gourmet culinary delights we'll be featuring handcrafted woven wine cooler baskets from the Kumiai Indians during a fundraiser for the medical needs of the Kumiai of San Antonio Necua. This evening 85 lucky guests will experience some unique wine, meet an entertaining and charming Russian, and discover custom-made handcrafted items created by the native people of Baja California. The event begins at 6:30 pm and will be hosted by David Bibayoff, Laura Torres and Steve Dryden.
