Located only a few miles northeast of the city of Ensenada, the Valle Guadalupe has become one of Mexico's prime wine regions, which accounts for 95% of the countries production. This hot and dry, yet moderate climate creates nearly perfect growing conditions for eclectic Mediterranean varietals such as Nebbiolo, Barbera, Sangiovese and Montepulciano. Knowledgeable wine connoisseurs consider many of the fine wines made in Valle Guadalupe to be World Class contenders.
