Valle de Guadalupe, an up-and-coming wine region (some say the next Napa) is home to more than 100 different wineries, some of the country’s finest restaurants, and amazing food trucks. When you’re hopping from winery to winery, you don’t always want to a sit-down meal, which is why food trucks are so popular in Valle. They provide travelers a quick bite before heading to their next vineyard or a snack to pair with their wine tasting. Many of the food trucks are run by renowned chefs, so the food served is the same quality as the fine dining establishments. Here are a few of the best food trucks in Valle de Guadalupe.
The Adobe Food Truck at Adobe Guadalupe vineyard and bed & breakfast is another favorite in Valle de Guadalupe. As one of the best wineries in Valle, the Adobe Food Truck is definitely one of the best places to grab a quick bite in between tastings.
The food truck sits outside the tasting room and features sleek wooden picnic benches, sunshades, and amazing views of the property’s vineyards and olive trees. The winery has a traditional hacienda-style, so the food truck adds contrast to the property with a splash of color and fun. The menu and food items are always evolving, making it hard to choose a favorite item. The menu has a Spanish flair, with Tapas, Polish sausage and sweet peppers and onions, ham croquet, pesto sandwiches, and Caprese salads.
