  This tour was so fun! Rose was so down to earth and is so knowledgeable about the history of san jose. The food choices were amazing & the Mezcal was a good way to end the tour. Mexican food and tequila is always a good combination. I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to explore San Jose. Thank you Rose and Rosalie :)

What to Expect - Valle de Guadalupe Wineries
 
The tour will include tastings at the following wineries:
 
Adobe Guadalupe:
Chilean winemaker Daniel Lonnberg produces a line of earthy reds, exemplary of the Valle de Guadalupe’s culture of blends. The winery also offers a crisp new world Chardonnay aged in stainless steel tanks. Unlike many of the area’s producers, only grapes grown on Adobe Guadalupe’s property are used in the creation of their wines.
 
Lechuza:
This small, family-owned winery has aged well in their single decade of operation to produce some of the Valle de Guadalupe’s finest boutique wines. Offerings range from hearty red mono-varietals to their award-winning Royal Rosé. Their Chardonnay, Amantes red blend and Nebbiolo can be found on the menu at Thomas Keller’s French Laundry.
 
Bodegas Magoni
Camilo Magoni is one of the Valle’s most renowned winemakers and began his career at L.A. Cetto, Mexico’s largest producer. He founded Bodegas Magoni to offer quality wines at affordable prices. Standouts are the Nebbiolo, which many consider the Valle’s “signature” grape, and their Manaz blend of Viognier and Fiano grapes, both varietals atypical of the Valle.
 
Alximia
Winemaker Alvaro Alvarez is a theoretical mathematician and applies a similar level of thoughtfulness to Alximia’s three lines: Elemental, featuring blends using typical Valle varietals; Helios, a pair of rosés, a wine becoming more popular in the region; and their award-winning Premium line, a Barbera mono-varietal, a rich red blend and their Talisman Viognier which is fermented in steel tanks.
 
Montefiori
Paolo Paolini brings his country’s winemaking expertise to the Valle de Guadalupe and planted vines imported from Italy and France. A champion of Nebbiolo, Paolo has commented “…the grapes here produces a wine that is darker, heavier and bolder than in Italy. “Bolder yet is Montefiori’s Nerone, and they are the only Valle winery currently producing this wine based on the Agliancio grape.
