Valle de Guadalupe and Ensenada, located one and a half hours south of San Diego, have become two of the most important and attractive destinations for all the wine lovers and foodies out there. There are plenty of good reasons to pay them a visit. Here are three of our favorites:
It might sound obvious, but the exponential growth that the industry has had in the area over the last few years, makes every visit to “el Valle” (as the locals refer to it) a unique and interesting visit. With new wineries opening each year, each visit will be different from the one before. Every winery has its story to tell, its reason for being, and its very own vision of how things should be done. The one thing they all have in common is the passion for producing quality wine, and the desire to place Mexican wine -especially the one from Baja- in the highest echelons of the wine circles.
Because of its privileged location, this region has the best of the best at its fingertips. From clams taken out of the water a few feet from you, to organic locally grown veggies, and the best aged cheeses, this place really has it all. With so many great products, chefs can create and experiment as they please. The best thing about this is that you don’t need to go to one of the fine dining restaurants to enjoy a sublime experience. There are a myriad of options that go from street stands selling fresh seafood tostadas in downtown Ensenada, to booths with authentic tacos at the side of the highway, to top-rated world-class restaurants. The possibility of not having a great meal is nearly impossible.
Do you enjoy escaping the routine? This is also a great reason to visit! Throughout the year, Valle de Guadalupe offers to locals and visitors alike a variety of events that range from massive concerts to very exclusive paired dinners. This will guarantee that you will have a unique experience each time you visit Valle de Guadalupe.
