Visitors approaching Baja winery Adobe Guadalupe will be impressed by its elegance and classic beauty. The large hacienda style building, which houses both the winery and a six bedroom bed-and-breakfast, is surrounded by sixty acres of thriving vineyards. In the distance, impressively large rocky mountains rise toward the sky. With a consistently temperate climate and rich soil, this region rivals southwestern France when it comes to growing and producing wine.
Both the winery and its cellar room were designed by Persian architect Nassir Haghighat and completed in 2004, since which time Adobe Guadalupe has become one of the most beloved attractions in the Valle de Guadalupe. Haghighat drew inspiration for his graceful building style from the desert architecture of Iran along the Caspian Sea.
Winemaker Hugo D'Acosta proudly presents five eclectic blends summoned from the earth and named for archangels - Gabriel, Kerubiel, Miguel, Serafiel and Uriel. These prizewinning blends feature unusual and interesting mixtures of grapes including Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, Viognier, Grenache, Syrah and many more. Each blend has a unique, well balanced and fruity flavor unlike anything else you will discover in the Valle de Guadalupe.
Delicious grapes are not the only things bred at Adobe Guadalupe - visitors will also find noble Aztec horses bred and stabled on-site! These horses are a careful mix between pure blood Andalusians and Quarters. Glorious, arrogant, strong and swift, they also have a special sweetness of personality.
Adobe Guadalupe is also a proud patron of local artists, whose creations fills every part of the building and winery. Featured artists include Juan Sebastian Beltran, Carlos y Miguel de la Torre, Yolanda Valdes, Natana Gulliver and Cecilia Garcia Amaro. The general public may acquire special works from these acclaimed artists at the Adobe Guadalupe art auction which takes place once a year.
