Mexico is still not very known for its wine industry, but it has been putting out some respectable wines in the hilly region of the northern Baja Peninsula. A new venture between Singapore’s Banyan Tree group and the Monte Xanic winery will bring a new upscale wine resort to the Valle de Guadalupe region.

“The region is a two-hour scenic drive from San Diego, USA. Measuring seven hectares, the resort will be set on prime hillside land affording breathtaking views of the entire property and valley site. At 396 metres above sea level and 16 kilometres from the Pacific Coast, the region boasts of the ideal Mediterranean climate. The resort is expected to feature some 40 luxurious pool villas.”
