Little Owls in Mexico - Lechuza winery Valle de Guadalupe

WOW is all I can say about Valle de Guadalupe, the wine region that we recently visited just east of Ensenada in Baja Mexico!  Quite possibly THE BEST WINES we have ever tasted...and believe me, we have tasted ALOT of wine!  This episode we were so lucky to meet Kristen at Lechuza Wines, and taste what truly is a passion project for her and her family, and you can taste the love in every drop!  The winery, which was named for the little owls that occupy the land, was started by Ray and Patty Magnussen in 2005, and released its first vintage in 2007.  Kristen, Ray's daughter, has carried on his vision of creating a unique selection of wines.  We tasted an amazing Sav. Blanc/Chardonnay blend, Vuelo.  Usually If you are a fan of either one of these grapes, you are pretty loyal, but this wine will make a believer out of you!Kristen's story of what it is like to start and run a family business, a winery, in a small town south of the border, raising a family and being an entrepreneur is fascinating and WE hope will make you want to visit one of the most untapped wine regions IN THE WORLD!  Easy to get to, beautiful, safe, some of the most amazing people you'll find anywhere, and the wines (over 300 wineries)are PHENOMENAL...put this one on your bucket list!www.vinoslechuza.com#elvalledeguadalupe#larutadelvino#vinoslechuza
