ENSENADA´S SOUTHERN VALLEYS
Many travelers are unaware of Mexico´s amazing wine culture. As this entire country was originally seized under Spanish control for several centuries before 1821, this perpetuated the introduction of grape varietals that play an important role in our tourism industry to this day. In valleys south of the city of Ensenada, you will discover Santo Tomás winery, the second oldest winery in the country and currently now surrounded by many more wineries, like its next door neighbors in Valle de la Grulla.
