Overview

AlXimia Winery is a very unique and completely different winery than what you will find anywhere else in the world. Started by a mathematician turned winemaker, this amazing winery was built by an innovative architect, the mathematician-winemaker and his astronomer father. It’s a 3 story round building that has been called “the flying saucer that landed in the Valle de Guadalupe”, the “Cathedral of Wine”, or “a sculpture disguised as a winery”. From the 2nd floor tasting room you can see the whole winemaking process, as the grapes come to the top floor and travel by gravity to the 2 floors below for fermentation, aging in French oak barrels and bottling. The barrel room is underground and can be viewed from above. You will be able to taste and buy their delicious wines – mostly non-traditional blends that make the best of the Italian & Spanish varietals that grow so well in these hot wine valleys. Alvaro (the winemaker) is considered one of the best up & coming winemakers in Mexico, and his wines have received multiple accolades – being rated 91 to 95 by Mexico’s top sommeliers.

We drove through the Valle de Guadalupe countryside when we by chance came upon the unique architecture of the vineyard tasting room and restaurant, which piqued our interest. The founder is a mathematician and his dad an astronomer, and it was founded in 2004. The...More

I have been coming to this winery for years. This review is strictly of the winery and not pertaining to the restaurants, of which I have gone to both of them. The first thing that gets you is the distinctive building of the winery itself....More

Decent wines...tasting felt a little rushed and there isn't much room at the tasting counter. Their wines are available at several retail locations in San Diego and are also served in numerous restaurants in So Cal, so this place has a more commercial feel than...More

When our hopes of mountain biking were washed away by torrential rain (at least for L.A. natives!), we decided to explore the wine region instead. As we were listening to a SciFi audiobook at the time, we were instantly attracted to AlXimia's "space ship" style....More

We stayed at a nearby bed and breakfast and ate here on one of the evenings. The food was great and the fact that we could walk here was perfect.
