Looking for the perfect place to sneak away this season? With rows of grape vines, a beautiful desert landscape, and gorgeous accommodations, El Cielo Winery & Resort in Mexico’s wine country, is just the place to cure your winter blues. Just South of the California border, over the hills of Ensenada, lies a wine lover’s paradise. And this is how to spend a weekend there…
Taste & Savor
With vines this picturesque, it’s only right…
Although the property itself is breathtaking, the wonderful draw of El Cielo is its wine! Go for the grapes and stay for the fantastic experience all around. From dining in the dark (a must!) to enjoying fresh ceviche and Chardonnay while overlooking the vineyard, there are countless experiences that combine delectable wine and food. Every restaurant on property incorporates Mexico’s finest flavors into incredible dishes. So, be prepared to indulge in every glorious sip and bite. By the end of your stay, you’ll be singing the praises of El Cielo’s winemakers and chefs. Paella anyone?
Experience the Culture
While on property, you can take part in a number of cultural experiences from touring the wine cellars and learning about the wine-making process, to stomping grapes out on the gorgeous lawn – a favorite activity of many.
Just beyond the resort, a quick car-ride away, is downtown Ensenada: home of the first Margarita, seafood tostadas, and streets strung with papel picados. Take half a day during your stay to explore the city and enjoy its colorful culture and glorious food. Roam the unique boutiques, the boardwalk, and be sure to stop by La Guerne Rense for street food and Bar Andaluz for a Margarita – you won’t regret it.
Rest & Reset
If sipping rosé poolside, or award-winning tempranillo fireside sounds like your form of relaxation, book a room stat. There is no shortage of idyllic settings to enjoy a glass of your favorite varietal; from the beautiful outdoor spaces to the luxe comfort of your villa. We encourage you to step into a slower pace and enjoy every moment of your stay. In addition to cozy seating and dining areas inside, there are beautiful garden walks right outside every villa. Walk along them with a glass of wine or follow the path to one of the many incredible restaurants onsite like Latitud32.
We can’t wait to travel back to this picturesque resort! But until then, we’ll enjoy a glass of the wonderful wine and pretend we’re here 👆.
