My Wine Society is bringing together the global community of wine.
We are celebrating Mexican wine with our partner wineries from the Valle de Guadalupe March 3 from 3-5:30 pm at Lechuza Vineyards.
General Admission includes free wine tastings from 5 of our partner wineries including Lechuza Vinicola, appetizers, live music and more! To enjoy the tastings, you must download the My Wine Society app. You can purchase food from The Deli Truck and additional wine by the bottle or the glass, as well. Tickets will cost $25 USD or $500 MXN at the door.
My Wine Society encourages you to enjoy responsibly! We have partnered with All About Wine Tastings to offer round trip transportation from San Diego to Lechuza Vineyards. No hassel driving, no hassel with border crossing. Bus will leave San Diego at 1:00pm and return around 8:00pm depending on border wait times.
Note on the weather: March can be chilly in the Valle. When the sun goes down temperatures will plummet. We will have heaters at the event but encourage you to dress accordingly.
MUST BE 18 OR OLDER TO CONSUME ALCOHOL.
How long does it take to get to the Valle de Guadalupe? It is about a 2 hour drive from San Diego to the Valle. The toll roads from Tijuana are well maintained and safe. There are three tolls which are $2.05 each and can be paid in dollars or pesos. We encourage you to purchase Mexican car insurance if you plan to drive yourself. There is ample parking at Maglen Resort. If you are taking a rental car across the border Avis has options for Mexican insurance.
How long does it take to cross the border to the US? We encourage you to check border wait times at cbp.gov There are three border crossings in San Diego: San Ysidro, Otay Mesa and Tecate. Before departing, check to see which has the shortest wait time. If you are leaving Sunday, we encourage you to leave before 7 am to cross the border. If you are leaving Monday we suggest leaving after 9 am to cross.
Are there Taxis or Ubers available in the Valle de Guadalupe? Unfortunately, taxis and Ubers are few and far between. We suggest contacting the concierge at your hotel to arrange private transportation (very reasonable costs). Please enjoy responsibly and plan ahead with a designated driver.
REMEMBER: PASSPORTS ARE REQUIRED TO CROSS INTERNATIONAL BORDERS!
