Adobe Guadalupe is a working winery, plus a bed and breakfast with six guest rooms. We are located in the Guadalupe Valley near Ensenada, Baja California. The successful wineries in the Guadalupe Valley today continue the tradition begun by the Russian immigrants who, arriving with their vine cuttings in 1904, planted the valley's first vineyards.
We have 60 acres of vineyards where we grow Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Nebbiolo, Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, Shiraz and a bit of Viognier grapes. We started our vineyards in 1998 and had our first harvest in 2000.
Visit our vineyards with so many cheap fares to Mexico and hundreds of return cheap
airfares Europe, Asia or Africa up for grabs online.
The story of this place in the Valley of Guadalupe began with a young man named Arlo, who died in a tragic car accident. Arlo was fascinated throughout his life with certain aspects of Mexican culture, from vineyards and sarapes to the Virgin of Guadalupe. Perhaps even then, the call of the Adobe was heard although it was years away from being built.
On a trip to Paris after Arlo's death, his mother, Tru, firmly believed that she had received a special sign during a visit to the cathedral of Notre Dame. Just outside the doorway of the cathedral she saw an anomalous Mexican chair with a sarape draped over it. It was seemingly out of place and this image stayed with her - the first seed of the Adobe had started to grow..
Two years later, Tru and her husband Donald returned to Europe in search of a place to lay Arlo's ashes to rest along with Tru's father. Still remembering the strange coincidence, Tru went back to Notre Dame and found that not only were the
Mexican chair and sarape still there, but that they were now part of a side altar - dedicated to the Virgin of Guadalupe. At that moment, the call of the Adobe was finally heard and Tru had a clear vision that she would end her days in Mexico. This feeling of peace and destiny told Tru that Arlo did not want to be separated from her, even in death, and that he would much rather be buried in a warm place - like Mexico.
