Located just a few miles northeast of Ensenada, about 850 feet above sea level, is the Calafia Valley. This remote part of the Baja Peninsula is widely recognized as Mexico's best wine-growing area. It's about a 45-minute drive to two of Mexico's favorite wineries. As you travel, your guide will tell you about the history of Ensenada and the Baja area. You will also learn a little about local customs and traditions.

At Casa Doña Lupe Winery, hear how high-quality wines are yielded from an unforgiving landscape of parched earth and taste the forward flavors and intensity of tannins that stressed vines create.

Nearby L.A. Cetto Winery pioneered the development of viticulture in Mexico. The winery is respected both locally and nationally for its expertise in the production of sherries, wines and brandy. Enjoy a 20-minute tour that showcases the process from growing to crushing, fermentation, pressing, casking, bottling and aging. Taste the wines paired with cheese and crackers. You can also purchase wines at a considerable discount.
