Mexico's Baja California region includes a collection of winegrowing valleys situated between 18 and 25 kilometers (11.2 and 15.5 miles) from the Pacific Ocean: (1) Valle de Tanamá, (2) Valle de Las Palmas, (3) Valle de San Valentín, (4) Valle de Guadalupe, (5) Valle de Ojos Negros, (6) Valle de La Grulla, (7) Valle de Santo Tomás, and (8) Valle de San Vincente. Each valley has its own unique characteristics, including different soil composition (including sandy, granitic, clay, gravel and limestone soils), water availability and microclimates. The Pacific Ocean also has a thermoregulatory effect, keeping the average temperature in the region 22°C (71.6°F).
