Valle de Guadalupe is the ultimate Napa Valley away from Napa Valley. In fact, Valle de Guadalupe has been referred to by Forbes as the Napa Valley of Mexico. How can this be?

Resting 1,000 feet above sea level, and containing a perfect Mediterranean climate, Valle de Guadalupe creates ideal conditions to grow and harvest red wine grapes. These grapes are no ordinary grapes, as they are often types that do not fare well in the Napa Valley, CA climate, making for a unique all-around experience.

Not only are the grapes unique, the wine tasting experiences in Valle de Guadalupe are some of the most unique experiences oenophiles can have while sipping vino with friends.

1. Wine Tasting by Helicopter

Think you have had all the unique experiences possible? Think again. For the adventurers at heart, this experience takes your wine tasting experience to new heights…literally.

Hop aboard a helicopter to be transported to and from a vineyard of your’s and your party’s choosing. While in transit to the vineyard, you will be exploring the Valle from above, taking in the beautiful landscape, other vineyards, and deep horizon.

Explore 3-4 vineyards of your choosing in the ultimate tour by helicopter. Not only will you be experiencing the beautiful scenery, but also you will be tasting some of the finest wines around.This day-trip is the perfect opportunity to experience something like never before, find a vineyard that you want to explore with your group, and perhaps even conquer a fear.

Explore VDG Signature Flight is the only all-day wine tasting experience in the Valle. Not only are you transported to new heights, but you will also be doing it with experienced flight staff and attendants to help you with your needs. If you would not like a full day of helicopter-ing, you can opt to choose the VIP Tour, which is a two-hour experience to a single vineyard.

Whatever your needs may be, there is an option for you!

2. Wine Tasting by Hot Air Balloon at Sunrise

Looking to celebrate something special, or just looking for something adventurous in your time in the Valle? Take a trip to one of the most requested adventure activities in the Valle. There is a good reason for this too.

Not only is the hot air balloon ride an adventure like no other, but the Valle sunrise is also something that comes out of adventure magazines. The view is completely picturesque. Kick-off a great day in the Valle by soaring over the beautiful vineyards of Valle de Guadalupe in the calm, serene morning atmosphere.

For 40 minutes you can take in the wonderful views, have great conversation, and sip on some sparkling wine with a toast in the air or on the ground.

With EXPLORE VDG, there are options for all parties with group flights or private, couple, flights. Think you will be hungry during the experience? No worries, there is also an option for bubbly and breakfast for two. This option includes a toast with bubbly, two bottles of wine, and breakfast after your flight.

No matter which option you choose, sipping on wine hundreds of feet above the ground, overlooking the mountain-scape and the vineyards below offers a stunning experience for all.

3. Wine Tasting by ATV / Off-Road

Looking for a daredevil adventure with a side of wine? This is the perfect opportunity for you! Hop on your all-terrain vehicle (ATV) and explore off-roading in Mexico’s wine country.

As the first off-road company in the Valle, this adventure boasts the most experienced staff in the Valle. You will be in for a safe, fun ride all while amping up your wine tasting game and taking in some beautiful sights.

This two-hour adventure for up to 6 people will allow you not only the opportunity to drink fine wine but also the experience of a lifetime connecting with nature and taking in the Valle in a new, adventurous way that only off-roading can provide.

Try something new, and adventure to a new place that you would not normally get to experience by taking the path less traveled on an ATV with friends.

4. Wine Tasting by Sea on Sailboat

Bring the wine with you to the coast! This is only a short drive away from Valle de Guadalupe and offers immaculate experiences and views. What will you be doing?

Spend the day on a luxurious 49u. Beneteau Sailboat. The boat offers bedrooms, bathrooms, a full kitchen, dining room, and living room which means there is plenty of room to bring your entire party (max. 6 guests) for a day out on the boat.

Not only will you sail down the beautiful blue bay of Ensenada, you will also be served either fish or shrimp ceviche and drinks (your choice of soda, water, and beer) to help you enjoy your sail.

The tour starts from the port of the Coral & Marina hotel towards the Punta Banda bay, and goes to El Sauzal and later to Todos Santos Island to return to the Coral & Marina Hotel. Additionally, this experience includes the transfer of Cuatro Cuatros to the Coral & Marina Hotel and back.
