Paoloni Wines, Baja
Villa Montefiori was founded in 1997 with the planting of 42 acres of land in the Valle de Guadalupe viticultural area of Northern Baja California, Mexico. Originally from the Le Marche region outside of Tuscany in Italy, the Paoloni family is dedicated to their long standing wine traditions and focus on both Italian and classic French grape varieties. Paolo Paoloni left his post as an Enologist at the Perugia University to manage the Valle Redondo wine company in Aguascalientes, Mexico. After several years with Valle Redondo, Paolo purchased 38 hectares in the Toros Pintos section of the Valle de Guadalupe just outside of Ensenada.
