Bachelorette Trip

10 of us went on this wine tour with Mario for a bachelorette trip. We had SO much fun, would definitely recommend! The views at the wineries were so beautiful, and Mario made sure to pick upbeat, fun places per our request. We really enjoyed the lunch at finca, and went to frida as a last stop for some tequila and dancing. We felt very safe and had an unforgettable trip!

Now we have fulfilled a long held dream

We took the Trolley from Santee to Old Town where we were greeted by Mario and Rene. Since there were only three more participants we joined Rene for our adventure south. What a fun and rewarding experience. Not only is Rene a great driver, he can sing and play the piano, and guitar. We were treated to those talents at Martlot Winery, and (singing) on the way back to San Diego. It was super hot in V. de Guadalupe (up to 105F) but the wineries provided the wines in ice buckets. Much appreciated. Our fellow participants were all happy and super easy to get along with. Rene made sure everyone was safe and involved in the conversations.
Our tour started at Montefiore, where we met the owner Paolo Paoloni. Super charming and knowledgeable guy. The wines were so good I have since ordered a mixed case, and am looking forward to sharing with friends. Next: Decanto where we had a cheese platter in addition to very good wines. Then lunch at Finca Altozano. Excellent food and service.
Since the company pays extra to go in the fast lane at the border our trip home was a breeze. It helped that the CBP officer was super friendly and teasing Rene.
For us this was a great experience and definitely to be repeated.

The Joys of the Valle of Guadalupe with Mario! 😃

What a beautiful breezy day wine tasting with Mario, our driver and guide. We visited Hilo Negro, Decantos & Casa Magoni, all delightful wineries. 🍷 A hassle free way to visit the “Napa Valley of Mexico”. Mario picked us up in San Diego, drove us across the border along the coast of Baja California and meandered through the vineyards of the Valle de Guadalupe. We had lunch at Finca Altozano, from the acclaimed chef Javier Plascencia. Mario was engaging, knowledgeable and made sure we all had an enjoyable time. We will definitely come back! You will be cheerfully surprised! 😍

Valle de Guadalupe: Fantastic 3 Night Adventure

We had an amazing time during our 3 night adventure in the Valle de Guadalupe. Mario was very patient with me during our planning process to create a fun-filled itinerary that included visits to the Rosario Beach Hotel, Puerto Nuevo, beautiful wineries and restaurants in the Valle, cheese tasting at the Cava de Marcelo, and Cuatro Cuatros. I really appreciated how flexible and accommodating Mario was during our trip. He is so knowledgeable about the area, always sharing interesting tidbits, and very personable. We had a memorable and safe trip to Baja. Thank you Mario!

Wonderful experience wine tasting in Mexico

One of the best wine tasting experiences ever! It was so fun seeing all the wineries and making new friends. My husband booked this tour for my birthday because we wanted to try something other than NAPA. I highly recommend this tour. The nicest part is having your own driver because they are not shy about their pours. The food was delicious and our drivers made us feel safe. Our tour guide was hilarious and knew each winery well.

Awesome experience!

We went on the Guadalupe Valley Wine tour with various companies, and can I just say how blown away I was!? Our tour guide was amazing and knowledgeable, the wine was good, and the scenery was gorgeous. I have been recommending this tour to many friends since that day...hoping to try the tequila tour next!

History and the Wine

Trip coordinator Mario has the perfect touch. He knows a great deal about the history and geography of Baja California, as well as how the history and the climate of the region helped to create the wine industry in Valle de Guadalupe. The history is an important part of the entire experience. We truly appreciated Mario's effort to narrate the important facts, all the while safely driving us through the spectacular scenery of NW Mexico.
