Vinisterra Vitivinicola is in the historic San Antonio de las Minas area of the Valle de Guadalupe. The meticulous grounds and tasting room are a hint to the quality of wine here.
The Rancho Cortes is located a ‘couple’ miles off of the highway and you may feel a bit lost when passing the cows and sheep. Keep going and follow the ‘Queso’ signs to the farmhouse. Once inside, you will find a cheese tasting of 8 cheeses.
Xecue pronouced, (check-we) means love in the local native language. The husband wife duo of wine producers, Jose Luis and Alberta, make some great wines.
Don’t let the nice location and fancy plates trick you, Belio Restaurant is not really worth the mention except as to warn you against spending money here. The wait staff is stiff. Our order, spoken in spanish, was misunderstood. The food was overly salty. The whole experience was not as good as you would expect.
Vinos Tres Valles has a great wine tasting room built with an emphasis on art, specifically the sculptures of local artist Alfonso Arambula. Each bottle of wine feautures art Alfonso created on the label.
Cafe Toya has homemade pastries, cookies and desserts. Of course they have teas, coffee, and espresso drinks.
