Mexico Is More than Just Margaritas: A Primer on Baja Wines

Date Published:
Los Cabos is a paradise where the desert meets the sea; a land of natural beauty paired with world class golf, fishing and spas, carefree beach parties, mouth-watering food, and fishbowl-sized margaritas. Margaritas that are made with – what else? – tequila. And Mexico, as everyone knows, is the land of tequila, not wine. Yet many travelers are wine drinkers, regardless of where they vacation. Some could even be called aficionados, planning trips around visits to vineyards and wineries. So it’s not unheard of for a Cabo visitor to forego that margarita, choosing instead a glass of wine with dinner. Yet whether you’re a casual wine drinker or a conversant connoisseur, you probably didn’t travel to Cabo with wine in mind. But did you know that Baja’s reputation for fine wines is growing in leaps and bounds? Take, for example, the inaugural Baja Meets NYC Wine and Food Festival to be held this February in New York. This four day festival is a celebration of Valle de Guadalupe wines and winemakers, as well as regional food and chefs. Baja wine and food are on the rise. It comes as a surprise to no one that you can buy a good Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile or Malbec from Argentina, but few realize that Mexico has been producing fine wines for a long, long time.
