The Reason Wines From Mexico Are Unlike Any Other Wines In The World

What is the Identity of the Valle de Guadalupe?

The combination of cool nights and sunshine make Baja an ideal spot for more intense red varieties. There are so many different varietals ranging from Sauvignon Blanc to Cabernet Sauvignon, but there is a clear favorite among many winemakers and sommeliers: Nebbiolo. Nebbiolo has adapted really well in the Valle, but just a few years back they were saying the same thing about Tempranillo. What is exciting is that winemakers can be creative and come up with very exciting blends

The mix of international grapes is increasing, the oldest vines in the region are Carignan, Grenache and Mission. Some winemakers believe these varieties also hold the key to Mexico’s wine future as they are the best adapted to the environment. The character of Mexican wines depends on the vineyard site. It has a huge mix of soils that have been brought to the surface by the action of the colliding tectonic plates in this very active seismic area. The most remarkable feature are the ginormous boulders that are strewn around the valley. It looks like the aftermath of giants having snowball fights, with rocks.
