valleyTucked away in the northern mountains of Mexico's Baja region, is one of the best kept secrets in the world of wine - Valle de Guadalupe.

Valle de Guadalupe, or Guadalupe Valley, is Mexico’s premier wine region. It produces 90% of all of the wine that comes from Mexico. Producing wine for over 100 years, recently this region has become a darling of the global wine scene, creating boutique wineries, gourmet restaurants and chic hotels.

The Mediterranean microclimate of these valleys, its altitude, temperatures and quality of the land, produces great wine. The prestige of these wines transcends Mexico and Southern California. As wine and food enthusiasts from around the globe continue to flock to the valleys, vineyards, and restaurants being written up in magazines and newspapers from coast to coast, the "secret" is getting out.

Mission San Vicente was founded in August 1780 by the Dominican missionaries Miguel Hidalgo and Joaquin Valero among the Paipai Indians of northwestern Baja California, Mexico.

This is the southernmost wine growing valley in Baja California, located 56 miles south of the city of Ensenada. Several large producers have been producing great quality grapes in this valley for a long time. The valley is named after the Dominican mission San Vicente Ferrer, which was established in 1780. Valle de San Vicente has an average altitude of 360 ft above sea level and is just 12 miles from the ocean. Red clay soils predominate the best growing sites and white grapes like Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay are the best expression of the valley’s terroir.
