A stop you can’t miss: the Monte Xanic vineyard
Once upon a time, five friends came together to create unique, high-quality Mexican wines. Their grape varieties quickly conquered Baja California, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Syrah, and Chardonnay.
The Monte Xanic tours begin in the reception room near the tasting bar where the winemaking process begins with a warm welcome. The tour then continues to the fermentation room where you can observe how the harvested grapes are macerated and fermented in stainless steel. Throughout the tour you’ll learn about the history of past vintages. It’s a fascinating tour!
Experience the underground cave which has unique natural walls made of stone that naturally encase the French oak barrels where the wine ages for several months before it’s ready to be uncorked.
The grand finale of the evening comes when a bottle of Monte Xanic’s most famous wines is uncorked. Are you a fan of open-air bars? Then get ready to try this incredible wine with a breathtaking view of the vineyard and the Guadalupe Valley!
