Progress Report: Vinicola de Cantos

They plan to reopen in March.

Jose Andres Rediscovers Baja Cuisine

The superstar chef came to Baja primarily to speak at the Tijuana Innovadara Conference, but he was able to check out some culinary hot spots in TJ, Ensenada and Valle de Guadalupe.  

Sounds like he was impressed.

Cool Picture: Cuatro Cuatros

Technically Cuatro Cuatros is not in Valle de Guadalupe, but it's very close and absolutely worth a visit. Time your visit near sunset and share a bottle of wine at their bar, Mirador. The view is absolutely stunning.

Trip Report: Poketo

I guess you would call Poketo a lifestyle brand. Their report about a trip to Valle de Guadalupe is certainly appropriate for their upscale image.
