Dedicated wine lovers are generally willing to travel just about anywhere to enjoy the alluring appeal of a special wine, produced in a special geographic location of the world. There has been much attention given to the famous vineyards of Italy and France, and domestically to the well-known wines produced in the Sonoma and Napa Valley regions of California.
While those areas should definitely be given their due, why not try a few wines which are capable of rivaling those esteemed creations, but are available at much lower cost? Most things that sound too good to be true, are exactly that. However, in the case of the Baja California wine experience at Valle de Guadalupe, there just might be an exception to the old, cautious saying.
Where is this Wine Lovers’ Paradise?
Residents of the San Diego area will be delighted to learn that Rosarito, Mexico is a short drive south on the coastal highway, and the entire drive provides some breathtaking scenery of the Pacific Ocean and shoreline.
