Like Los Cabos luxury market competitor One & Only Palmilla, Capella Pedregal is also importing world-class talent for annual culinary events. Just as Palmilla has hosted two Mexican Culinary Festivals with some of the Mexico’s top chefs in attendance, Capella is once again bringing in some of the finest chefs in the U.S. to participate in their 2nd annual food and wine festival, A Taste of Capella.
