Known for its burgeoning local wine scene and spectacularly bad roads, Valle de Guadalupe is just a few hours drive from LA but truly feels worlds away. From eco-friendly luxury cabins to tasting menus featuring produce grown on-site and wineries that exhibit the true essence of terroir, read on for our picks on where to stay, eat, and what to do in Valle de Guadalupe, Baja, MX.
Twenty minimally designed, eco-friendly cabins are scattered along the hills of the valley, each cabin with its own private deck, fireplace, and breathtaking views. The cabins are covered with Corten steel, which oxidizes over time and is meant to encourage a gradual blending into the surroundings. The property consists of 40 acres of unspoiled terrain that include a pool, restaurant, wine cellar and tasting room.
Corazon De Tierra
Named one of Latin America’s best restaurants, Corazon De Tierra is hidden away in the depths of the valley and housed in an elevated wooden building made entirely from recycled materials. The restaurant produces its own olive oil and sources all of its ingredients on-site or within a few miles’ radius. The five-course tasting menu changes daily and is often a fusion of Baja, Mediterranean, and Asian flavors.
Simple and rustic with wooden floors, high ceilings, a big chimney, and windows that look out onto the mountains beyond. The menu changes daily and is based around local produce and seafood.
Run by esteemed winemaker Hugo D’Acosta, who trained in Bordeaux, Casa de Piedre was born as a family-inspired project, with the intention of creating wines that are characterized by their origin, or terroir. The epic scenery is the ideal compliment to the full-bodied Cabernets and Tempranillos.
