This winery has a tasting room on the second floor of their building, which allowed for a “treetop” view of the vineyard. The wine tasting room is a modest-sized with a modern rustic charm. There was also an outdoor deck. Before we started our wine tasting, we were given a few olives and chucks of cheese, delicious! Their wines are organic, so sometimes the wines looked brownish and a bit murky, but good tasting. They offer 4 different wine tastings ranging from $300 MEX to $550 MEX. I opted for a glass of white wine, 2019 Del Viko Blanco (French Colombard/Chenin Blanc blend, $120 MEX) which was light and perfect for a hot day. I also ordered the “Tabla de Carnes Frias”, $450 MEX, and it was a delicious chartucherie board, filled with cold meats, olives and artisan breads. Yum!

This was the third winery that we stopped at on a tour with Baja Test Kitchen. The benefit of taking a tour like this is that you get to visit wineries that might otherwise be off of your radar, and Torres Alegre was such an unexpected surprise. It was the biggest and most "industrial" of the three wineries we visited, but to make up for the lack of charm that the other wineries had is the expertise of the Torres Alegre family that is behind the operation. The patriarch has a PhD in the enology from Bordeux, France and innovated the process of winemaking. His son Leonardo "tasted us" through the wide variety of wines that they offer, and explained the process of making each one and the qualities of each. He then gave us a tour of the cellar and the process of winemaking. I came out from Torres Alegre feeling more knowledgeable about the art of winemaking as well as the importance of Mexican wine as a whole.

Went to this winery based on prior raving reviews. Must say that I was disappointed. While the views are nice, the wine is sub par. Had the 3 reds, at 23 dollars per tasting. All 3 were bitter and quite young. The last one, the server informed us that it had a leathery taste and a manure bouquet. We thought he was joking. But no, he wasn't. We left the wines and left. Total disappointment. One and done.

We loved the ambiance here and the views and the wine. It seemed like everyone was really enjoying themselves the day we went. We loved the first tasting so much, we decided to add a second tasting of different wines. The Viko Blanco was fab as was the cru Grenache and the cru Syrah. We also had a cheese plate and stayed a while. The grounds are lovely and the staff is very friendly. Would highly recommend this place. Call for a reservation, it’s typically easier to get a res earlier in the day, especially on a weekend.

During two recent escapes to the Valle de Guadalupe, we discovered more sophisticated blends. Torres Alegre, which has the most expensive wines in the valley based on the work of a French-trained enologist, offered a rich 50-50 Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc called La Llave Blanca for $30. Torres Alegre also had our highest scoring wine of the visits, a 2006 La Llava Tinta for $50 featuring a blend of 80 percent Cabernet Franc and 20 percent Merlot, with two years in French oak. It had an older Bordeaux-style nose, bright fruit on the palate, balanced to big, with a long tight woody finish. Call a week or more in advance to schedule a tour and tasting.

We came here with family during an adventure to the valley, and this was our favorite stop. Great people, the great views, and (of course) the wine. Great view from the outside deck. This place is def worth a stop when you're exploring the area.
