Baja Peninsula, Mexico—
Located in Baja California, Monte Xanic produces 55,000 cases per year in this clean, modern winery.
About 30 of Baja California’s 100-plus wineries recently joined together for the first time to host a group of 30 U.S. wine buyers, sommeliers and members of the media.
The three-day trip was organized by the Mexican Vintner Marketing Alliance created by two importers, Tom Bracamontes of La Competencia Imports in Napa, Calif., and Michelle Martain of La Mision Associates in San Diego, Calif. The area doesn’t yet have a formal winery organization.
