Enjoy a private all-inclusive wine tasting tour (9 am to 7:30 pm) to Valle de Guadalupe.
In the morning, you’ll be picked up at your location of preference and driven south across the border in a private luxury van. The air-conditioned van seats 6-14 passengers with reclining seats and plenty of legroom. For those who prefer privacy, the only people you need to communicate with is your party and tour guide.
Once in Mexico, you will enjoy an easy one hour drive along the Pacific Scenic Route towards Ensenada. Stop over at El Mirador for a view of the bay. During whale season, you may spot a few whales in the water. Baja whale watching is a favorite activity and, if needed, we can stop for a closer view or bathroom break. Once in beautiful Ensenada, we’ll go east for ten more minutes into the Baja wine country. By 11 am, you’ll be enjoying delicious reserve wine from Valle de Guadalupe!
The private wine tour includes visit to three boutique wineries with complimentary wine tastings. In between enjoying wine, you explore the winemaking process through a guided wine tour. We will also stop for lunch at the highly-reviewed Finca Altozano. Chef Javier Plascencia will prepare a five-course set menu of organic BajaMed dishes.
