WLI Mobile Tour: Valle de Guadalupe
The Valle de Guadalupe is one of the world’s hottest up-and-coming wine regions and tourist destinations
The New York Times has deemed the Valle de Guadalupe an unexpected wine sanctuary in Baja California. Carefully curated boutique hotels are attracting visitors from across the world, and some of the region’s celebrity chefs, like Javier Placencia, have created culinary destinations that is rapidly transforming the region. We are fortunate to have this gem a short two-hour drive south of the international border.
Join the Women’s Leadership Initiative for a day-long excursion to the Valle de Guadalupe. Our group will meet at 8:30AM at the entrance to Ped West pedestrian crossing.

About the Tour
L.A. Cetto : The Valle de Guadalupe, San Vicente, San Antonio de las Minas and Tecate are the valleys where the large vineyards of LA Cetto are found. This great extension allows to enjoy microclimates and different soils that benefit from the sea winds and breezes, great vineyards that are not only recognized for their great beauty but also because they have allowed to obtain wines of great quality with the 14,000 tons of grape harvested annually of the 1,100 hectares that compose them and where there are vineyards with up to 80 years of age.
El Cielo an enotouristic project located in the heart of the Wine Route, in Ensenada, Baja California. This is one of the regions in Mexico that produces the best wines in the country, wines of great expression and character. Vineyard, Winery, Restaurant, Coffee Shop and, soon, Boutique Hotel. El Cielo offers you an unforgettable experience.
Finca Altozana is like an adult campground, with its vineyard-adjacent outdoor dining area enveloped with the scent of the wood-fired oven. Everything emanating from the asador campestre, or country grill, tastes earthy, smoky and meant to be eaten with a knockout glass of Valle wine. Don’t miss the grilled lamb tacos or wood-fired mushrooms, the single best preparation of the lowly fungus I’ve ever had. Carretera Tecate
