I’ve had this article on my to-do list since the beginning of the year, and I’m so glad that I’ve finally gotten around to it. Late last year, Jorge and I spent an incredible weekend in the Valle de Guadalupe located two hours south of San Diego near Ensenada, Mexico. Think of it as the Napa Valley of Mexico. The area has been producing wine for over 100 years, and is responsible for 90% of the wine made in Mexico. Surrounded by rolling, rocky mountains, the valley has an ideal climate for growing many different grape varietals. Its expansive desert landscape is dotted with wineries, hotels and roadside farm stands where there’s a big focus on local and sustainable practices. We went to several amazing wineries and restaurants throughout the weekend, and I’m sharing highlights below along with plenty of photos!
