Finca Altozano

En Bloc Hotels™ | Mexico | Valle De Guadalupe | Food + Drink


When San Diego Eater named its 2013 Chef of the Year, we were extremely pleased to learn the winner is a chef best known for his work in Tijuana and Valle de Guadalupe. These days, Javier Plascencia is gaining international praise for his wine-country ranch outpost Finca Altozano. In the true spirit of El Valle, this rustic open-air kitchen celebrates the region using local produce, seafood, and meats with a view of the adjacent vineyard to boot. Just a few minutes’ drive from Encuentro Guadalupe, the restaurant features an outdoor patio, group bonfire area + tables above repurposed fermentation barrels, and the faint smell of mesquite and olive charcoal emanating from the grills. Sample the homemade bread & olive oil, cured meats, vegetables, and their specialty smoked lamb from Rancho Cortés, all paired with local wine and craft brews. Finca Altozano is an amazing way to begin or end a day of wine tasting, with a friendly staff welcoming you Tuesday – Sunday (closed during winter months, re-opens 4 March 2014)
