Recently I had the extraordinary opportunity to visit Adobe Guadalupe, a winery in the Guadalupe Valley wine region in Mexico. It is a short 45 minute drive from The Ranch. This winery is a gem that surpassed all expectations I had.  I knew we would be having lunch at the winery, but what I didn’t realize was what an intimate and gorgeous setting it would be in.  This tasting was during the wine tour that was part of our recent Culinary Week.  More details about the wine tour will be coming in another post, but I really wanted to highlight our friends over at Adobe Guadalupe and the fantastic time our guests had at the winery.

We arrived at the beautiful villa and headed down to the tasting room which had breathtaking views of the vineyards.  We were promptly served Rose wine (my favorite!) and then moved on to reds, which are the vineyard’s specialty.  We tasted five wines and then we’re given a tour of the grounds.  I learned that the villa is a six room bed and breakfast – it would be the perfect place to extend your vacation to after visiting The Ranch! Next, we had an intimate three course meal paired with wine in the villa’s lovely dining room. The food was out of this world.  Lastly, we toured the horse stables and met the friendliest group of puppies who call Adobe Guadalupe their home.

    Hi Kathryn,

    I am in awe of the experience you had at the Adobe Guadalupe (on my birthday no less). I have been researching the Guadalupe Valley in advance of my arrival at Rancho on June 21. I will be performing with Deborah Winters that week and have been contemplating a day trip to a few wineries in the Guadalupe Valley while I’m there. Your post has made me crave the experience even more.

    I inquired through a number in San Diego about how I might do that and was told that it may be possible to hire a van and a driver from Rancho to go down there? If so, am I likely to find a few other wine enthusiasts who might share the expense of that van?

    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. I can’t wait to get to Rancho!
