Wine from Mexico’s Valle de Guadalupe is relatively hard to come by in the U.S. — but it might also be L.A.’s next big thing.
Individuals crossing the border from Mexico can only bring one liter of wine with them into California. And tourists who get a taste for Mexican wine before they come back home may be surprised to find that it’s not commonly found at local wine shops. But restaurants are very slowly adding Baja wines to their lists. Tintorera in Silver Lake is one such place, building out a Mexican wine list that’s meant to introduce customers to a whole new grape world.
