Baja Wine Country

The wine producing regions of Baja, like wine itself, have gotten better with age. In the past few years there has been an explosion of creative juices flowing south of the border as new and exciting wineries and wines are popping up seemingly overnight. Some have called it the 'renaissance of Baja's wine country' and the excitement is growing.

The Guadalupe Valley just northeast of Ensenada is at the forefront of the Baja wine movement and has over 80 wineries - artisan, boutique, and commercial, both large and small who are producing some remarkable wines. Our guide features an in-depth look at 40 of the wineries. The people of the region are fascinating and they love to share their passion with visitors. So dive in and and discover the magical wine destinations the Guadalupe Valley has to offer!
