Santo Tomas Winery, in the Santo Tomas Valley, 25 miles south of central Ensenada, offers a beautiful environment and a pleasant tasting room. The tasting run $19.00 USD for five large tastings or you can buy individual bottles and drink on site. You can sit outside on tables or inside near the many racks of wine. For about $8.00 USD,...

Once you get to the tasting room you walked up the ramp through HUGE double doors into a gorgeous room. The place is really nice and modern with bottles of wine stocked from ceiling (high ceiling) to floor. The glass casing which showcases the boxes of fine chocolates they sell is also where you do the tastings with a guide.... More

We found the staff to be nice enough, but rather opinionated - given their youth, it seems they could not possibly pronounce with such authority on the wines ... the details of which one girl spouted forth on, and I could not have possibly disagreed more on! But, tasting, at the end of the day, is very subjective. But after... More

We booked this as an excursion on our cruise. What we didn't know was that the visit is to the tasting room and not to the winery. This is not the wineries fault though. We were taken around a room in a warehouse that looks like it may be used for displays. Not much was labelled and a lot more... More

The very best Tinto (port wine) I've tasted since travelling in Australia. They also make a wonderful chocolate for wine pairing. An enjoyable experience in Ensenada, Mexico.

We visited the actual winery in Santo Thomas on our way back to San Diego from mid-Baja because it is easy to get there, is well-appointed and love tasting in different wine regions. The access road is lovely, punctuated with really lovely signs that pique your interest and tell the story of this venerable operation. The tasting room was open... More

Bodega de Santa Tomas, Ensenada Mexico Some enjoy wine, others don't. Short, sweet and simple- some folks need to enjoy their tastings, others are content to throw a shot across their tongue and call it done. Our tour group arrived and stepping off the bus noted the winery had a location on the opposite side of the street as well... More

We got tired of walking around the souvenir shops and went inland a few blocks to the BST in-town winery. We were told a tour was $5. But as we prepared to pay for the tour, a tour bus rolled in. We were shooed away, told we could not join in on the bus' tour, and told to come back... More

We've been visiting the winery for many years and never tire of it. The wines are consistantly good, and the artifacts are amazing. I love the paintings of the Friars and the altar boys- full of fun and mischief. a must see in Ensenada
