The Valle de Guadalupe is located 30 kilometers inland from Ensenada, on Mexico's Pacific Coast, 100 km south of the border with the United States. Consequently, its vineyards are the northernmost of Mexico's and the distance from the ocean is between 15 and 20 kilometers. The vines are at altitudes between 300 and 400 meters above sea level.
