Mexican wines and wineries from Mexico
Vineyards and vintners
.A couple of hours from downtown San Diego, just across the Mexican border, lies the Valle de Guadalupe, a place of green valleys and boulder-covered hills. Its dry, hot summers and cooler, damper winters, combined with porous soil and cooling sea breezes, are ideal for grape growing. This northern end of the Baja California peninsula is, in fact, one of the New World's oldest wine-growing areas. Jesuit priests cultivated vines here in the 18th century, and the first commercial winery, Bodegas de Santo Tomas (santo-tomas.com), opened in 1888
Wine devotees know about Napa, Bordeaux, and Mendoza, but what about Mexico's Valle de Guadalupe? Beyond tequila, fish tacos, and all-inclusive resorts, multi-talented Mexico has acres of vines that produce a muy bien glass of vino.
