Why it’s worth traveling for…
Arriving at this 86-acre vineyard, with its rows of grapevines and terra-cotta rooftops, may feel like Tuscany or Napa. But the destination is Mexico’s El Cielo Resort, the most respected winery and hotel in Baja’s Valle de Guadalupe región. Located on Mexico’s famous wine route (more than 75% of the country’s wines are produced here), the intimate, villa-style hotel is a gastronomer and oenophile’s dream. Bicycle through the vineyards, lounge by the pool, feast on fish tacos and ceviche, and partake in a guided, taste-sampling tour of the vineyard, which cultivates 15 grape varieties including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Sangiovese, and Malbec. For ultimate indulgence reserve a master villa suite, with fireplace, soaking tub and terrace.
