Hugo D’Acosta’s little school where the big dreams of Baja winemaking in the Valle de Guadalupe became real.
The human being is honored here, with an annual class on how to harmonize natural elements and bring balance through the process to produce an individualized barrel of wine.
The diaspora of winemakers who have graduated from La Escualita now includes Vena Cava, Tres Valles, and many others. Buildings and machines from olive oil production are the foundation of the little school and olive oil continues to be made.
Art comes to life in many forms here from the use of local materials by Alejandro D’Acosta and a winemaking mural by Carlos de la Torre to the making of wine by one’s own hands.
