Is Baja California the next Napa?

Is Baja California the next Napa? | Baja California | Scoop.it
Accolades have been rolling in for the region of Baja California between Tijuana and Ensenada, with publications such as the Wall Street Journal, Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast and The Guardian of London raving about the experience and the wines. The wines don’t have a specific taste profile but can range from a clean and elegant sauvignon blanc to a funky blend of tempranillo and carignan that tastes a little like a pinot noir. Baja winemakers aren’t trying to be California wines or Italian wines or French wines, said Heidi Holcomb-Rinehart, wine manager at Central Market. Mexico City native Hugo D’Acosta, a winemaker who trained in France, came to work for Santo Tomás and soon opened his own winery, Casa de Piedra, which paved the way for other winemakers and launched a willingness to experiment. If you have a great fine-dining restaurant that happens to feature Mexican food, why not feature wines from Baja California?

Please not the next Napa - keep it rustic, we say!
