It is Clos de Tres Cantos as seen from the highway through the Guadalupe Valley. The sight is enough to stop traffic, if there were much of that on this road.
Get closer, and you'll find one of the most architecturally astonishing wineries in the valley, a stunning composition of rocks and cement.
Clos de Tres Cantos opened in September, 2014. It was designed by architects Alejandro d'Acosta and Claudia Turrent, whose innovative work can be seen in other valley wineries. D'Acosta is the brother of Baja wine pioneer Hugo d'Acosta.
In the courtyard (at top) you could well be in a Mayan temple.
Grapes are purchased because the winery is so new. The wines have philosophical names such as Tu Mismo (yourself), which is a blend of four red grapes; Duda (doubt), a blend of Carignan and Mourvedre, and Nada (nothing), a Tempranillo-Petite Sirah blend.
Nada's label (above) matches its name. Why call it that? Because "nothing can be anything" is the answer.
Seared tuna on rosemary stems served as dippers for a melted mixture of four cheeses in a bread bowl. The cheeses came from the Ramonetti cheese cellar in Real del Castillo in the Ojos Negros valley. A fig and tomato marmalade on the side lightened the rich taste of the cheeses.
It you order Duda (above with Joaquín Moya), read the back label. It tells you to taste it and then "doubt everything and find your own light." That saying, from the Buddha, may sound wise, except that there's nothing to doubt about Clos de Tres Cantos becoming a major stop on the Baja wine route.
