About Adobe Guadalupe

Adobe Guadalupe Vineyards & Inn is one of the older wineries in the Valle de Guadalupe wine region. Their first grapes were planted in 1997 and the vineyard celebrated its first harvest in 2000. What makes this vineyard seem to stand out from the rest is its beauty, architecture, and seemingly limitless list of things to do in one place. In addition the vineyard and wine tastings, you can book a stay at Adobe Guadalupe in their six-room Bed & Breakfast, dine at their al fresco restaurant or food truck, book a massage or horseback through the vines. The structure was built in the classic hacienda style and was designed to take advantage of Guadalupe Valley’s natural features and beauty. There are stunning courtyards, stables, and wine cellars to explore throughout.

The vineyard spans about 60 acres and harvests Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Nebbiolo, Tempranillo, Malbec, Grenache, Cinsault, Mourvedre, Syrah, and Viognier grape varietals. After looking at a bottle or two of their wines, you’ll notice a trend in the way they are named. Each of Adobe Guadalupe’s wines is named after an angel, representing the founders lost son, Arlo. Tru and Donald Miller were on a trip to the Notre Dame in Paris and noticed an oddly placed sarape over a Mexican chair. For whatever reason, this image stayed with Tru and Donald. Two years they returned to the Notre Dame and saw the same Mexican chair and sarape draped over it, this time as a part of a side altar dedicated to the Virgin of Guadalupe. This uncanny sign is what led Tru and Donald to found Adobe Guadalupe in the Guadalupe Valley. Arlo served as an angel to them and their wine bottles reflect that: Uriel, Gabriel, Serafiel, Miguel, Kerubiel, Rafael, and Jardin Secreto.
