Holy crap.

This place, if you can find it, is WAY up there on my top list.

Highly recommended.

      This is the restaurant at La Villa del Valle. Designed by Alejandro D'Acosta, noted green-architect (and brother of winemaker Hugo D'Acosta, [Casa de Piedra and Paralelo] founder of the Guadalupe Valley wine school [la Esculeta]).

      The hotel and restaurant are a bit off the beaten path, on a two mile dirt road off Hwy 3 or a shorter dirt road that is poorly marked, such that I ended up in someone's front yard where the residents were burning tires and trash.

      The restaurant and hotel are certainly worth the effort. Great food, some grown on the grounds. They were even giving a try to small scale aquaculture to have freshwater fish.

      There is a good winery on site too and Alejandro has inverted ship hulls to serve as the roofs over the wine cellars.

      I am going down next weekend for Viñedos en Flor.

            Cute, but it is better for such a question to be answered here in the thread than for every person wondering to have to go and figure it out on their own.

            And more specifically than BC, it's in Valle de Guadalupe.

              In time, you'll learn to avoid disappointment by skipping my posts.

          Aw, come on. Pretty pictures, but I thought copy writing was a highlight of your professional skill set. ;)
