The Best-Tasting Wine Can Also Be Found in America

It is widely recognized that Europe is among the regions the produce the largest and finest wine in the world. In fact, in the latest figures provided by the International Organization of Vine and Wine (OIV), the European countries Italy, France, and Spain topped the list with a combined production of 110 million hectoliters (mhl) in 2017. No wonder why tourists continue to flock to this region not only to visit beautiful places but for wine and food tasting as well. You might be one of them.

If you are in the U.S. and if traveling to Europe for now is not feasible to you for some reason, do not fret! You can still try the best-tasting wine without going far away. Yes, you read it right. Some of the best wine brands in the market today can also be found in America.

If you are in California, it is even more easier to reach these wine-producing regions. These places are considered many tourists as a “wine sanctuary” and “vineyards and culinary marvels” in the south. They can be reached by a few hours drive from San Diego, California border down to Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. You should definitely try them if you happen to be a wine lover.

So, without further ado, here are some of the places in the region that received (and continue to receive) rave reviews from tourists who have been there.

  • Finca Altozano – One of the restaurants that is located in Guadalupe Valley that has been given high marks on various review websites. Among the most popular items they serve are grilled octopus, tacos, and beef. Aside from serving delectable menu items, the place serves invigorating desserts, and of course, the finest wine that customers can possibly have in the whole Guadalupe Valley.
  • Encuentro Guadalupe – This five-year-old resort is just about two hours south of the San Diego Airport. Robert Draper, a journalist who writes for the New York Times, described it as “a space colony of metallic abodes jutting from a lunar mountain.” and has an “infinity pool, with its spectacular view of the desert crags.”
    The resort is within a surface of 99 hectares, which also includes a winery and restaurants. And, just like the Finca, the place received rave reviews from tourists who have tried staying at this place.
  • Relieve Vinicola – Rated “excellent” on Wine Searcher website, this winery is popular for Nebbiolo wine. Nebbiolo is the grape variety behind the top-quality red wines of Piedmont, Italy. The place is also known for red, rich and intense wines – deep, fruit-driven, and jammy; filled with ripe, rich fruit, and a plethora of spices.

There’s more waiting for you down south in this Mexican region. A few hours ride from San Diego opens up new vistas where excellent vineyards and wineries nestled, waiting for you to discover.
