Maglén Winery offers an unforgettable tourist and gastronomic experience in Valle de Guadalupe

Baja Californian resorts are some of the biggest tourist attractions since they offer several services and one of the best in the state is Maglén Resort. It is located at Valle de Guadalupe, Ensenada, and here they will have everything necessary so that visitors enjoy their stay.

Alejandro Flores, Maglén Resort PR manager, spoke with Baja Window to the South host Denitza García about the wonders of this resort. It has 60 rooms where you can stay at divided into three areas , which are called El Encinal, Tesela, and Villas. They also have gastronomic offers at their two restaurants Cantera and Yumano, as well as a coffee shop, brewery, and the star of the resort, Maglén Winery.

Internationally awarded wines

Though Maglén wines are young, their great flavor and quality have been recognized internationally and have won several awards. They have classic offers such as red, white, and rosé wine; but since 2021 they have begun making orange wine and sparkling wine. The making of these last two is quite limited in Valle de Guadalupe.

Orange wine, meanwhile, gets its color when the juice of white grapes comes in contact with the grapes' skin. Sparkling wine is made in the traditional champagne method, which means there is a second fermentation in the bottle.

Maglén Winery has won five medals in two competitions: 2 gold medals thanks to their 100% Cabernet Reserve Wine 2018; and a gold medal and silver medal thanks to to their 100% Petit Verdot 2018. They also always take care of the fields and soil so that they can harvest good grapes to make them into wines.

Ancestral gastronomy at Yumano Restaurant

Meanwhile, Yumano Restaurant is named as such in honor of Baja California’s first ethnic group, the Yumanos. Their dishes are based on a mix of ancestral flavors, while always embracing the ethnic groups who were the first steppingstone in the state’s history. Among these groups there are Pai Pai, Kumiai, Cochimí, and Cocopah.
