Less than two hours from the San Diego border, this vast, craggy valley is not just a hotbed for foodies and the sip-and-swirl set. With a muy tranquilo vibe, it’s the ideal place for instantly slipping into vacation mode, winding along dirt roads to indulge in one-of-a-kind outdoor dining and dream-big architecture that embraces the land. You can even take off on a helicopter to the ultimate hilltop picnic. “We are making history as we speak,” says Fernando Perez Castro, a vintner. Consider this your lesson—splash of flinty rosé included.

“Right now there is this boom in Mexican wine,” says Fernando Perez Castro, owner of Hacienda La Lomita, one of the valley’s next-level wineries helping to produce the region’s 2 million cases annually. “A new generation is stepping up the quality,” says Castro, cradling a 100 percent grenache. The winery just added a new alfresco eatery, TrasLomita, and a VIP tasting room.
