Yes, there IS a wine bar in Baja. LA VID is located directly across the parking lot from the Rosarito Beach Hotel. This sweet, unpretentious little wine bar carries an impressive selection of Mexican wines from the Baja Guadalupe Valley wine country. Owners Norma, Jorge (the handsome young Sommelier pictured here) and Norma Jr., have worked hard to create a wine bar with a special ambiance. Crisp white table clothes, candles and fresh flowers adorn the small tables to create an intimate wine tasting experience. Romantic Mexican music drifts softly from behind the bar. Olive oil and rosemary bread along with organic salsa is served with your wine. Wines from Baron Balche, Bibayoff, Adobe Guadalupe (see photo), Santo Tomas and L. A. Cetto are offered by the glass and bottle, and since LA VID buys directly from the wineries, the prices are amazingly affordable. So, drop in, drink and browse the adjoining art gallery at LA VID. Tell Jorge that Robin sent you!
