Baja California, MX- -
With its cool winter, dry summer and misty evenings the state of Baja California Mexico is ideal for grape growing and because of that, some of Mexico’s best wine can be found in the Valley of Guadalupe located in Baja California.
“The valley of Guadalupe is the wine place of Mexico,” said Dora Westerlund CEO of the Fresno Area Hispanic Foundation.
Westerlund along with other member, made the trip south of the border to visit the area.
“We know that there is a lot of opportunities and this time was to showcase what those opportunities were,” she said.
One of the vineyards visited was LA Cetto.
“We give a tour of the facility where we explain the wine process some general information of the winery and its history then we have a tasting,” said Adrian Sandoval LA Cetto representative.
The winery said they would like to create partnerships with central valley businesses.
“We have open doors and its something that we would like,” said Sandoval.
“We picked those wineries because those are the ones that are ready to export and do business with the United States,” said Westerlund.
Thanks to the contacts made during the Baja California visit Fresno business owner, Ricardo Flores said he hopes to a create a partnership with Mexican wine makers, and be able to import and sell the wine locally.
