At Carruth Cellars, we're very proud of our California grapes and award-winning wines, but it’s always fun to taste other regions! That’s why we partnered with Boca Roja Wine Adventures (Awarded California's Best Wine Tour Company 2018) to offer our loyal fans a winery tour through Valle de Guadalupe, a highly respected wine region just south of the border which is home to over 160 wineries, dozens of great restaurants and some of the top hotels in all of Mexico!
Your all includsive (typo) Baja Wine Adventure is just a click away. Enjoy secure transportation from Carruth Cellars in Solana Beach and back, four boutique winery visits and two reserve wine tastings, and a gourmet lunch of farm-to-table dishes... oh, did we mention we stop for all-you-can-eat tacos on the way down? We also provide water, beer, and Carruth Cellars wine in the van! And last but not least, we will visit a bar which rests on the edge of a 1,000ft. cliff to catch a beautiful Baja sunset!
We like to mix things up, so every tour has a slightly different agenda. We'll have a detailed itinerary confirmed for the December 29th tour soon, but you can see our typical itinerary below for a good idea of what's to be expected...
