Did you know that Mexico has a beautiful region with gently rolling hills where vineyards produce delicious wines?
I had no idea! About two hours deep into Mexico, you will find several wineries. I had the opportunity to explore a few of them and want to share my photos.
If you get the chance to explore the Baja’s Guadalupe Valley, be sure to have your camera to take some shots. We got very lucky after an intense downpour of rain in Southern CA, to have a lovely sunny day.
First stop, L.A. Cetto Winery.
This was my favorite wine! A crisp white and I regret not buying a bottle.
L.A. Cetto is a pretty winery with picture-perfect views of the vineyards.
Everyone loved Casa Frida which was hip, colorful, funky and we all agreed it was our favorite stop!
Here’s a little info on this place:
“Grisell de la Rosa, entrepreneur, owner and author of Casa Frida. This project was born in honor of her grandmother, Petra Elena García Zamora, who established the first art gallery in Ensenada called “Galeria García” over 60 years ago. Grisell spent many moments of her childhood there, developing her appreciation for art. Moreover, many of her family members are established artists who have exposed their work around the world, which is why she decided to reconnect with her roots and develop this project dedicated to Mexican art.
On a trip to Coyoacán, in Mexico City, Grisell and her daughter Stephany visited the Frida museum and that is where she reencountered her passion for art and decided to bring a piece of the heart of Mexico to Guadalupe Valley.”
I’d love to go back and take more photos along with doing an official tasting!
They also offer tequila which I didn’t know. I do love some good tequila and wish I had the opportunity to taste some.
We had a taste of their wine along with a small snack of tacos and ceviche. I wanted more! After a long day on the road, we were all ravenous.
I urge you to wander around and explore the property if you get to Casa Frida.
The grounds are bright and the small artistic touches really set this place apart from others.
Last stop during twilight was El Cielo.
If we had more time, I would have loved to have checked out their restaurant. A glance at their menu has me seriously craving some good Mexican food.
This trip was through Travel Massive and San Diego Winery Tours!
