Where the Vision for Epoca Was Born

Epoca’s San Diego-based developer, ColRich, became enamored with the Valle de Guadalupe following several team retreats to northern Baja. The area’s rustic beauty and inventive architecture were so inspiring that the Valle became the focal point for the Epoca vision. From natural flagstone and native grasses to decorative metals and interwoven grapevines, an artistic synthesis of materials symbolically replicates the Valle throughout Epoca.


Visualize the Valle at Epoca

Less than a two-hour drive from Otay Mesa, the burgeoning Valle de Guadalupe has become a coveted destination in the heart of Baja California’s wine country. The region’s vineyards, restaurants, wineries and art galleries are mostly situated along the main road known as Highway 3 or La Ruta del Vino. Visitors to the Valle are inspired by the area’s authentic natural beauty, farm-to-table cuisine, impressive vineyards and creative architecture. From wineries located under upside-down boats to sleek underground cellars, innovative design styles are all around.

This signature Valle innovation comes to life at Epoca where design-forward, new-home and apartment neighborhoods highlight clean lines and a minimalist aesthetic. You’ll find an unexpected mix of natural materials in building interiors and exteriors, such as corten steel, brick, iron and natural woods, reflected in Epoca’s three primary architectural styles of Modern Farmhouse, Urban and Mexican Resort.
