Forget Napa, Sonoma and Tuscany. There’s a new destination on the enological map — Mexico’s Guadalupe Valley, where tidy rows of vineyards are surrounded by boulder-dotted mountains. Unlike its American and European counterparts, the vineyards in Guadalupe Valley thrive in a special climate resulting in a flavor unlike anywhere else in the world — a hint of saltiness and a little heat. Discover how to distinguish these rare flavors as you venture to vibrant Mexico and escape the California crowds for a less commercial, highly authentic wine experience. Then, take your taste buds to the valley’s unique culinary world as you explore the region’s world-renowned Baja-Med cuisine through a delicious multi-course meal and cooking class. Learn from seasoned winemakers, chefs and artists who have flocked to Baja and established exuberant wine and culinary industries in the beautiful countryside. What are you waiting for? Vámonos! .
