ENSENADA WINE VALLEYS
If you enjoy wine tasting and some great scenery, plan a day in the Wine Country of the Northern Baja. Just inland a ways south west of Tecate and north east of Ensenada there are numerous wineries. The wine growing region of Baja California lies within the valleys of San Vicente, Santo Tomás and Guadalupe, all located just north of Ensenada. More than 90% of Mexico's table wines are produced here, one of the most famous being Bodegas de Santo Tomas, founded in 1888.

Much of the Baja California peninsula has a semi-desert climate, but Ensenada's region has a cold marine current which helps to produce a Mediterranean climate which is ideal for growing wine grapes. With its warm summers and mild winters, not to mention sunny days and cool nights during the growing season, these valleys produce fine Mexican wines with a style of their own. You will find these wines sold in most stores in the Baja.

The wine makers of the Ensenada region produce a complete range of types and styles of wines. Mexican wines from this area have obtained international recognition, and are being exported to Europe, the United States and Canada in ever increasing quantities.

You will find these wines sold in most stores in the Baja. In addition, many of them have restaurants, tours, and wine tasting. It is a great day trip to the valleys. The scenery alone is worth the drive, but be aware it is a drive. From the Beach Houses it is roughly 1.5 to 2.5 hours depending on traffic and which wineries you visit. Obviously some are closer than others. Download the Ruta Del Vino pdf above for directions.

At the bottom of this page, I have posted a few of the Wine labels from this area. Also I have included contact information and hours for the wineries and finally another map.
