Heaven Is Blending Tradition With Responsibility

We care deeply about preserving and protecting the lands of Valle de Guadalupe, the most important wine district in Mexico. Not just for us, but for every guest and for future generations. That’s why we’ve created many green initiatives and sustainable practices here at El Cielo based around functionality, efficiency, and optimization – all while cultivating a sense of community in the region. We are proud to have received recognition by the government of Ensenada as the 1st Eco-Responsible Company in 2015.

ORGANIC FUNCTIONALITY

The vineyards are maintained organically, avoiding the use of harmful pesticides and agrochemicals. We work with, not against, nature when it comes to the natural control of pests that affect the vineyards. To avoid the application of aggressive chemical systems, we use falconry to scare off pests, instead of hunting them.

WATER RECYCLING

Given the increased focus of water conservation, we have a sustainable system that reuses water up to 3 times. Our gray water treatment plant has a capacity to process 8 thousand gallons per day. This treated water is then returned to the sanitary services (WC) and is later integrated into the sewage network. The sewage treatment plant has a capacity of 10 thousand gallons per day, providing revitalized water used to irrigate the orchards and gardens.

SUSTAINABLE DESIGN

Our winery was designed with energy efficiency and sustainability in mind. That’s why we used construction materials from the region to build the structures. Our roof and walls are insulated, reducing up to 70% of the energy needed to cool, in addition to using 100% of inverter air conditioning equipment. We have LED lighting and plasma motion detectors to turn on and off the lights automatically. To reduce gas consumption, solar water heaters have been implemented in all the villas. When it comes to handling waste, we apply the highest standards of disposal with collectors certified by the SEMARNAT.
