Wine Tasting Tours

"Dick and I were the first of the wine tour guests. We both had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the camaraderie that you and your friend Luke provided, as well as the food, wine and the whole Baja experience. We wish you well and will think of you often."

The Wine and the Valle de GuadalupeThe Guadalupe Valley near Ensenada is the center of wine production in Mexico and has a fascinatiing history, from the first grapes planted by the missionaries in the mid-1800’s, to the Russian immigrant families which arrived in the Valley in the early 1900’s, to the more than a dozen wineries which thrive there today. Explore this beautiful valley crossed with dirt roads and carpeted by grape vines. Taste Mexico’s finest wines at old and new wineries nestled into the foothills surrounding the valley. We stop, tour and taste at 2-3 wineries such as L.A. Cetto, Domeq, Bodegas de Santo Tomas and Monte Xanic.

“…I am happy to state that the Mexican wine industry is alive and growing, and nowhere more evident than in the area around Ensenada. Winemakers trained in more than seven different countries are producing exciting wines using modern viticultural methods, state of the art fermentation equipment and innovative winemaking techniques. Wineries are beginning to enjoy international recognition as their wines receive more gold, silver and bronze medals in respected competitions.”
