Dining and Lodging In Mexico's Up-And-Coming Wine Region, Valle de Guadalupe

Wine has long been made on Mexican land, regional winemaking harking back to the Spanish conquest of the 1500s. But as an industry, Mexican wine is still very much in its infancy. For the last few years, Valle de Guadalupe in Baja, Mexico has been undergoing a boom. Growing from a few small wineries in the nineties to over 100 today, the region has accordingly received a lot of press and recognition. Last year, Baja featured in the Wine Enthusiast's Travel Issue's Top Wine Getaways of 2014, and has also featured in Food and WineThe Guardian, and the Economist. With all the recent attention to Valle de Guadalupe as an emerging food and wine travel destination, Grape Collective highlights some of the area's hotel and restaurant options.
