Mexico's wine country is one of the hottest topics in the wine industry in the Southwest United States. Vince, the host of V is for Vino and I traveled down to Ensenada to show the incredible culture, food and wine. Expect a magical experience when you book a tour to the Valle de Guadalupe with Take in Baja & The Grape Underground.
In this short video, we visit JoAnn Knox who is the Owner and Winemaker of Cava Vintango. JoAnn talks about the origins of this winery and her wine making philosophy. Cava Vintango is known for making bold Napa-Style red wines. Cava Vintango is located in the oldest standing house in the Valle de Guadalupe. While you're sipping wine, check out the art gallery featuring local Baja California artists.
I am constantly searching for unique small production wineries to showcase at The Grape Underground’s wine dinners and tasting events in San Diego. I have recently started working with Metrick Wines in Santa Barbara and Zichichi Family Vineyards in Sonoma.
There are around seven valleys that I have heard winemakers in Baja speak about, however there are five valleys that stand out for their quality and are most frequently used.
