As summer fades and temperatures cool down in Baja, a Valle de Guadalupe winery tour offers a calm and refreshing respite from the hustle and bustle of the urban grind. For many of our guests, the weeks between the middle of October and early December are the best time to be in Baja wine country, when the fall gives the region a much-needed break from the heat and humidity of summer.

Cool Weather and Fewer Tourists

Another reason to visit during the fall is a noticeable difference in the number of tourists. Although the Los Cabos travel industry sees a steady, year-round stream of tourists from all over the world, August and December are typically the low season of the year, which makes it a fabulous time to come and visit if you want quiet seclusion.

What You’ll See

A Valle de Guadalupe winery tour also brings you up close and personal with luscious bunches of grapes hanging heavy from the vines. If you come early, you can see the vineyards before the harvest while you enjoy a glass a glass of wine. The colors can be a lovely sight, with the leaves turning to gold and red—an awe-inspiring spectacle indeed. And because of the cool autumn weather, walking around the vineyards won’t feel like a chore at all.

What You’ll Eat and Drink

Fishing is at its peak in Baja during this time of the year, which means an influx of fresh-off-the-boat seafood for you to enjoy at any of the great restaurants in Valle de Guadalupe. You can also take your pick from year-round table offerings, such as charcuterie, tapas, pizzas, and salads—a fresh winery tour salad is an experience we also recommend to our customers’ delight.

No Valle de Guadalupe winery tour would be complete without sampling the local wines. The Valle de Guadalupe region contains more than 60 wineries—all packed in a 35-square-mile area—so different winery tours may let you see different places (and sample different wines!) each time. Try any of the local whites and match it with a light meal.

Why Valle de Guadalupe?

Just an hour’s drive from the San Diego border and a few minutes away from Ensanada, Valle de Guadalupe has grown to become one of North America’s most intriguing food and wine destinations. The area is also one of the oldest wine cultivating regions in America, beginning with the Spanish, who brought over vine clippings from Europe some five hundred years ago.
