“Valle de Guadalupe has so much to offer that we often felt it difficult to fit all the magic into just one day,” says The Wine Pub owner Sandy Hanshaw. “With the overnight trip, guests can enjoy the wineries and soak in the beauty of the region in greater depth.”
On the morning of Feb. 25, guests will enjoy sparkling wine and depart from The Wine Pub in Point Loma to cross the border. The journey will begin in Tijuana for locally loved cuisine at Tortas Washmobile, followed by a day filled with tastings at Paralelo Winery, TrasLomita and Alximia Winery. The day will conclude with dinner at one of Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants, Corazón de Tierra.
To kick off day two, guests will have some down time and then head to a meal at Almazara with Magoni Wines – a one-of-a-kind dining experience in the heart of the valley. Wrapping up the tour, guests will shock their taste buds with a craft beer tasting at Agua Mala Brewery.
Wine connoisseur and Baja California expert, Fernando Gaxiola, will join Hanshaw to guide the tour using his insight into the region’s rich history of winemakers and family-owned vineyards. Gaxiola owns the largest importer of Baja wines, Baja Food + Wine, which promotes boutique, family-owned and artisan wineries in Valle de Guadalupe – the region that produces 90 percent of artisan Mexican wine.
