|Behind the Scenes Baja: Episode 11|

In our last episode, we began our exploration of the Valle de Guadalupe, visiting the olive and lamb farm Rancho Olivares and learning about the wonders of Mexico's only true Mediterranean climate. But perhaps the real draw of the valley is its undiscovered, world-class wine region. With conditions comparable to Napa Valley, the cool evenings and warm, sunny days are instrumental in allowing more than 50 wineries to exist in the area.
From small to large, including a visit to a wine school designed to help local grape growers turn their yields into more profitable wine production, we found a wonderful community of growers who championed this amazing part of the world that hardly anyone knows about.
The next time you see some Mexican wine from Valle de Guadalupe, we encourage you to try it! It's unlikely that you'll be disappointed.
