I took my wife to get a some wines from Bodegas de Santo Tomas. I was expecting to find someone that could advise us, gives some information on the wines, and explain the characteristics of the wines. Unfortunately, this place reminded me of a liquor store, with two workers checking out people and using the computer.

Easy location in Ensenada, if you don't have the time to explore the Guadalupe Valley or the vineyard south of Maneandero. Immaculate wine tasting room that was once the office of one of the Mexican Presidents in 1930. Still has the original floors and a huge vault of the time period. And the wines! Rich and full of heart. Don't... More

This is the oldest winery in the Baja with some wonderful history. My husband speaks Spanish, so we were able to read the signage that was only in Spanish. We also asked a number of questions about the history before a large group came in from the cruise ship. They had 4 wines to taste - 3 of them sweeter.... More

I've read about Santo Tomas being the oldest vineyard/winery in Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico so I was interested in checking out this place to see if I'd find a couple of bottles of wine not readily available in Milwaukee and I could share with my dinner club. None of the reds available for testing interested me so I decided to... More

Don't stop here if your a cheapo! This is a good historic winery and it will cost you a few bucks for a great memorable experience. Have some wine, have some cheese and crackers... When you got your wine legs going take a walk among the vines. Enjoy!!😜

This is the Napa valley of Northern Baja California. If you enjoy wines and will be traveling through you will have over 150 winery's to choose from. There are such great views of the vines and surrounding mountains. This place was founded by Spanish Monks back in 1888. Now its one of the best wines in the area. They have... More

We stayed in the area south of Ensenada to hike, beach and generally explore. We decided to go to this winery one morning You have to reserve a guided tour which we did not but they have a small area where you can self guide and taste their different varietals right off the vine. It was pretty cool. You can... More

First, if the young girls are pouring, AVOID! Not very knowledgeable and certainly not friendly to seniors. However the Temprarillo is the best, just the best which I always try to order in resturants when in Mexico, high quality consistent, Cab and Babera also excellent wines, here you chance to sample without investing, listen to daCoach! available in Grocery Stores,...

We popped in Santo Tomas' wine store for a tasting. It's not on a vineyard, and they no longer make wine at this location, but the store/tasting room is new and well appointed. We paid $16 for 8 pours (4 white, 3 red, and 1 port). We found the wines easy to drink and well priced. The gal pouring for... More
