Valle de Guadalupe
Retreat to Wine Country in Baja, Mexico
Valle De Guadalupe
Baja’s Valle de Guadalupe, or Guadalupe Valley, is Mexico’s premier wine region. For starters it produces 90% of all of the wine that comes from Mexico. Although the area has been producing wine for over 100 years, just in the last decade has this wine region experienced the incredible growth that has turned it into an up-and-comer on the global scene. It’s now become an epicenter of northern Baja for boutique wineries, gourmet restaurants and chic hotels, garnering the attention of publications such as The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Condé Nast Traveler and the LA Times
Food in Mexico has always been a huge part of the culture. Baja California is no different, except the influence and scope of the food is more international. Baja California as a place of migrants has food influenced from all of the diverse regions of Mexico but as well from Europe, Asia, and because of its proximity to California, American tastes and fads. This blend of interests has given birth to a unique Baja California Cuisine. Defined by its accessibility to an abundance of organic crops and produce, the food in Valle de Guadalupe began as a compliment to the wines, but then took a life of its own. Now the food and beverage options range from small quaint tasting menus to lively music and lighting.
Charm Diversity & Accessibly
What makes Valle de Guadalupe such a strong proposal in the wine world is how diverse it is. There are wineries of all types. Ranging from huge, as L.A. Cetto that sells 20 million bottles a year, to J.C. Bravo whose small batch Carigñan is harvested from nearby rain irrigated old vines. There is also a scale of formal to completely informal depending on every person's particular taste. That’s the beauty of Mexico, the diversity and freedom of the experience.
Even though there are distinct differences in terroir and culture, many compare the Valle de Guadalupe to California’s Sonoma County as it was decades ago. The atmosphere is relaxed and rustic but sophisticated at the same time. You’ll drive for miles on a dirt road to get to a gourmet restaurant where you’ll enjoy a six-course meal with a full wine pairing. There are now docens of wine experiences in Baja California with more coming to life every year.
Many wineries and restaurants in the Guadalupe Valley are open all year long, some places focus on the summer, blossoming with the times leading up to the vendimias or harvest. Part of the reason Valle de Guadalupe has become more popular is due to people appreciating it more and more in all seasons, through the crispy winter, and the windy spring. Many have outdoor seating with sweeping views of the vineyards and valley as you enjoy your wine and artisanal, locally-sourced food.
