Great food and fantastic wine? This is the place to go for a trip of indulgence. Couples and friends love to discover Mexican wine in this vineyard town.

Whether you’re looking for a luxury resort and winery, like El Cielo, a modern experience, like Encuentro Guadalupe with rooms “floating” on the rocky mountain, or a glamping adventure, like the Campera Bubble hotel, there’s something for everyone. There are about 200 wineries here, producing almost all of the wine in the country.

Many of them are open for tours, like L.A. Cetto, Monte Xanic, or Vinícola Bruma. You can not only enjoy tastings, but some have restaurants that offer pairing dinners to highlight the flavors of the Baja cuisine, and you can go through the vineyard on foot or even on bikes.

Lately, Guadalupe Valley has grown as a gourmet destination with some top restaurants like Fauna and Laja. During the summer, several pop-up farm-to-table restaurants open with outdoor seating overlooking the vineyards, or in some you can even sit among the vines. 

In August, the Harvest Festival (Fiestas de la Vendimia) arrives with celebrations filled with music, games, and food in wineries, vineyards, and restaurants all through town.
