The stereotypical images of Mexico's Baja California include sun- drenched beaches, bizarre spiny plants, and remote dusty pueblos. But Baja is full of surprises. Known for its tequila and cerveza, the country's burgeoning wine industry may someday give these traditional beverages stiff competition as it starts to draw international recognition. Host David Yetman is joined by Bill Beezley, acting head of The University of Arizona Latin American Studies department and historian, for a tour of the region's vineyards. They search for the origins of this growing interest in wine-making, from the very large growers and producers to wine co-ops, where anyone can join in the fun.
