We will be reporting on our trip to Baja California's Valle de Gaudalupe wine country this week. We left our car at Border Station Parking and met the Van that would be our transportation in Mexico. As always Highway 10 from Tijuana toward Ensenada is very scenic as it follows the coast which includes dramatic cliffs towering above the rocky shore below.
Then we left the coast for Valle de Guadalupe which is Mexico's premiere wine country and our mission was to spend two days visiting new wineries and vineyards.
But first it was to enjoy breakfast at La Cocina de Dona Esthela, a restaurant that has achieved a reputation for serving traditional Mexican dishes as part of their cuisine and menu. This included an acclaimed Borrergo Tatermado as well as Borrego en su Jugo. All this with tortillas being made as you watched.
The only downside to La Cocina is that it is off the main highway and you will need a local person to guide you to it
Then it was on to Finca La Carrrodilla Winery which is new and fits in so well with the scenic, beautiful Valle de Guadalupe countryside that surrounds it.
More about this trip tomorrow.
