Tula & Tepotzotlan
Visit the former Toltec capital of Tula and its famous stone warriors.
This special day excursion gives you a wonderful tour of the renowned Queratero wine region and its local produce and markets. We start at Tequisquiapan, visiting the wine and cheese museum, where the best products made in this region are sold. You will have the chance to taste them in a nice provincial yard. Between May and June, a cheese festival is held in the park, where gastronomy and world delicatessen samples are prepared.
We continue our visit, stopping en-route at two local handicraft markets, continuing on to Vinos la Redonda, a provincial wine producer with a beautiful vineyard, set amid attractive scenery. The whole production area is open to visitors, beginning with the plantation zone and the industrial installations where they produce mainly two grape varieties: Salvador and Cabernet Sauvignon. We then continue on to Freixenet, in the Ezequiel Montes District. Freixenet is one of the most important wine producers in the continent and you will enjoy a special degustation of their products and a guided tour through the vineyards.
After this visit, we will visit the La Azteca ranch, whose vineyards produce excellent Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, among other varieties. The ranch also has horses, a riding yard and Mexican style installations for parties and celebrations with a charro atmosphere.
Finally, not far from the ranch is the Pueblo Mágico of Bernal, whose huge monolith is the third biggest on the planet, behind only the Rock of Gibraltar and the Sugar Loaf Mountain in Rio de Janeiro. This town has colonial alleys lined with handicraft shops and colorful houses, full of Mexican style.
Combine a visit to the colourful colonial town of Puebla with a visit to the site of the largest pyramid in the Americas.
