Valle de Guadalupe, Baja California

Has any one stayed in this area? It is a wine growing region about an hour south of the border (between Tijuana and San Diego). It has working vineyards and a few resorts and restaurants. They have a wine harvest festival every year. I am interesting in thoughts or experiences any other Fodorites have had.

hola nanabee, I read the Mexico forum daily here on Fodor's. I've never seen anyone post about this area here.

That said, I think it looks lovely and that you should definitely go (!) but that's only from reading hard-copy travel magazine articles and online forums about that region.

Hola suze. I have seen a few articles but mostly in west coast type magazines like Sunset and Westways. Sounds like it would be an interesting getaway and is only an hour or two by car. We would come back thru Tecate border crossing. I always forget how much I love Mexico until I start thinking about it! Adios.

I bet it was in Sunset magazine (ha-ha). I'm leaving within the month so have Mexico on the mind.

It is indeed a lovely area. We have friends in nearby Primo Tapia that took us there last year. It's home of course to some of the larger brands such as Monte Xanic and La Cetto as well as a number of boutique labels. We went during the week and it was not crowded at all, which is what we prefer. But since we stayed with our friends, we didn't get to check out any lodging. And as you probably already know or guessed, there's plenty of very moderately priced seafood places in the Puerto Nuevo/Primo Tapia/Ensenada corridor as well.

LA Cetto is probably where & why I first heard of this region. That's my go-to white wine in Mexico.

Mike Dunne, former wine writer for the Sacramento Bee, has spent time in this area. Here is a rather old link:

Also Google Mike Dunne, Sacramento Bee, wine, Guadalupe.
