A GUIDE TO EXPLORING THE BEST OF WINE COUNTRY IN VALLE DE GUADALUPE MEXICO

As luxury travel advisors, we can help you choose the best place to stay & make sure you are treated like a VIP during your trip to Mexico’s wine country! Contact us here to start planning!



Our trip included stays at two remarkable establishments: El Cielo Winery & Resort and Hotel Punta Morro. Both accommodations left us enamored, each offering its unique charm and comfort.


El Cielo is a five-star resort that offers a luxurious vineyard experience complete with gourmet dining & spa amenities. We were greeted with a welcome glass of wine at check-in & had a welcome amenity in our room (which we can get you by booking with us as your travel advisors)! El Cielo’s Italian Villa-style rooms are spacious, comfortable, & offer breathtaking balcony views.



The entire property is beautiful, massive (as you can see in this @kitchensinkit Instagram reel), & very safe, located behind a gate & 2 guard stations. They offer complimentary transportation around the resort & winery which is very convenient, too! Since the property is so big, I was able to enjoy my morning runs around the vineyards & there is a small gym!

We paid extra to have breakfast added to our reservation which we highly recommend. Breakfast is at their Polaris restaurant & had the best chilaquiles we’ve ever had. El Cielo has another amazing restaurant that we tried for dinner & we’ll share more details about our experience later on in this blog post! The resort's food options don’t stop there though. They also have a room service menu which we enjoyed during our last night. The resort also has a pool which wasn’t heated, but it is beautiful & they have a poolside menu. 


Rich & Kitch think El Cielo Resort is the perfect place for a romantic weekend getaway, mini honeymoon, or wedding anniversary trip! El Cielo even has a church which makes this resort great for a destination wedding, too.

Please contact us here if you’d like to stay at El Cielo Winery & Resort!   


We wanted one night of our trip to Mexico’s wine country to be by the ocean & we loved our stay at Hotel Punta Morro! The hotel is located in Ensenada, Mexico, & offers a tranquil coastal retreat, complete with beachy boho vibes, inviting pools, & mesmerizing sunset views.



The rooms are spacious, comfortable, & have beautiful balcony views that are perfect for listening to the waves. The only downside of staying here for me is that there is no gym, but I got my mile run around the property! If you know us, you know we LOVE being by the water, so our stay here was the perfect seaside escape to end our road trip stop in Mexico's wine country.




WINE TASTING IN VALLE DE GUADALUPE

Valle de Guadalupe boasts over 100 wineries, each offering its distinct flavors and ambiance. To maximize your wine-tasting adventure, we recommend booking private transportation so you can explore hidden gems off the beaten path. Our wine-tasting adventures led us to several esteemed wineries, each offering a unique blend of flavors & experiences! 

Since we stayed at El Cielo, we had to try their wines, & they did not disappoint! The tanks & barrels wine tasting with the charcuterie board was our favorite. It was a great learning experience & this tasting had our favorite wines. The opportunity to taste directly from the barrels added an immersive dimension to our tasting experience, so this tasting is a must! 


We also did the Estrella’s tasting in the cellar room which was low-key & relaxing. El Cielo’s stars wines are their highest rated & very good! They also have constellations wines & another tasting in the cellar paired with chocolates.
