Mission: The Monterey Bay Tequila & Cuisine (MBTC) is a tribute to the rich and colorful history of agave based spirits to celebrate and positively influence its present and future cultural, social and economic significance.   Sip. Savor. Salud!

The MBTC is the premiere agave event on the West Coast! Monterey County, the gem of California's stunning Central Coast, features unmatched natural beauty and is an iconic setting for the MBTC.  Monterey County is known as the "salad bowl of the world," which is why we are so proud to partner with local renowned chefs to bring you scrumptious cuisine that pairs perfectly with Mexico's emblematic spirits.  Join us for a first-class agave experience on Saturday, October 13, 2018.  You'll be glad you did!
