In Baja, Live by Suzanne Koch

A standout property in Mexico’s Valle de Guadalupe, El Cielo Winery & Resort has everything you need for a great grape getaway.

Located in the heart of the Wine Route in Valle de Guadalupe, the boutique property features an award-winning wine production led by winemaker Jesús Rivera. Offerings encompass four lines of wine — Astros, Astrónomos, Constelaciones and Estrellas (The Reserved Collection) — offering a range of varietals from light to full-bodied wines. Whether you’re new to vino or an expert connoisseur, El Cielo’s wines will please any palate and are a great example of Valle de Guadalupe’s offerings.

Those looking to dive into the world of wine can enjoy winery activities like wine tastings, cart rides and grape treading/stomping (offered seasonally in August). Other offerings include cycling and tours throughout the winery, day trips to nearby locales like Todos Santos and more.

Accommodations are as enticing as the wine at El Cielo. Considered the first luxury hotel in the Baja wine region, guests can expect elevated amenities throughout its 56 elegant suites. Located in villas, the suites feature neutral tones, rich woods and stunning views of the vineyards and surrounding landscapes. Upper level suites include things like fully equipped kitchens, dining rooms, fireplaces and more for a cozy stay.

Guests can dig into an array of culinary options from fresh seafood and grilled meats to the obvious wine accompaniments like cheese and charcuterie boards. Its exclusive Latitud32 serves a fusion of Baja-Yucatan cuisine while its more casual Polaris restaurant delights with its Baja-avant-garde cuisine featuring local ingredients.
