Chef, mentor, visionary, and entrepreneur, he is the engine behind Grupo Pangea and is responsible for the wine trademark Maria Tinto.


Guillermo González has been a mentor to many outstanding chefs and is at the helm of six restaurants. He has put Monterrey on the international gastronomy map and is also one of the chefs in the program Encuéntrate con México (Experience Modern Mexico), promoted by the Mexican Ministry of Tourism (Sectur).

Born in Ensenada, at the age of 14 he knew that he wanted to be a chef. At 17 he started to study, first in San Diego and later at the Culinary Institute of America.

He worked at several prestigious restaurants in Europe and the United States. In 1998 he decided to move to Monterrey to open his own restaurant Pangea, which would be the cornerstone in the foundations of Grupo Pangea, a small gastronomic empire aimed at providing knowledge and extoling the flavors of northern Mexico.

In 2005 his passion for wine inspired him to launch and make his own trademark: Mariatinto, producing the best wines in Mexico.

Monterrey is a land where we do a lot with a few ingredients and we manage to show more of Mexico
