Tour Details

Calafia Valley Wine Country

Check out two prominent Mexican wine makers on this Calafia Valley tour. Calafia Valley, known for its delicious wines, is a must-see for any wine lover. Enjoy wine tastings and more throughout this unique Ensenada tour.

Your Ensenada wine tour begins with a 45-minute drive to the destination. Throughout the ride, you'll learn about Ensenada's past and its culture from your knowledgeable guide. The first stop on the Ensenada wine tour is Dona Lupe. This family-owned winery is renowned for much more than its premier wines. Expect to try more than 30 kinds of fruit jams, cheese, bread, olive pate, over 10 cream liqueurs, jalapeno dip, avocado dip, and more than 10 different cream cheese mixes, such as strawberry, chipotle, mango, and others. You'll spend about an hour and 15 minutes at this winery before proceeding to the next.

The second winery on this Ensenada excursion is L.A. Cetto, which dates back all the way to the 1920s. While visiting, you'll be treated to a walking tour of the location and witness the wine-making process. There will be a wine and cheese tasting here as well. After this stop, you'll ride through the countryside and return to the ship. If you decide to stay in the area after the final winery stop, you will need to get your own transportation back to the ship.

Amazing Value
March 27, 2020
Did this tour in January. Highly recommend! Tour guide and driver were excellent. This is a small group tour and I think we had about 12 people on our tour. Drive out to the Wine Country was relaxing and very similar to the landscape in the Temecula region of Southern California. I enjoyed the food tastings and laid back atmosphere at the 1st winery. LOVED the wine and cheese/bread at the second one. You won't be disappointed.

A very pleasant day in Ensenada
March 11, 2020
Booked this tour for our family (2 Adults 2 kids 14 and 13). We were greeted right outside of the docks and escorted to the waiting bus. It is about a 45 minute ride to the wineries. The wineries were very pleasant with plenty of food and a flight of wine to try. Although this doesn't cater to kids, they were given a free soft drink of their choosing at each location and plenty of food to snack on. We even got to hang out with a couple of the wineries cats while taking in the warm sunshine. All in all, it was a great experience shared with about a dozen other folks from the cruise. A great experience that I would recommend.

Awesome Excursion
January 09, 2020
Quick reasons why my fiancee and I LOVED this excursion: -Small, intimate group size -15 Passenger Van (No charter bus!) -Fluent and easy to understand guides all around -Tip the driver! He spills facts the entire drive to the vinyards and then keeps quiet during the drive back (because you are likely full from all the wine/food and probably want to take a quick nap) -Take home bottles range from $12-$15 (we brought home 9! and didn't have any problem getting through customs) -Preferred the wines at L.A. Ceto (the bigger vinyard) You cannot go wrong with this trip! While everyone else is cramming at the blowhole, you'll be enjoying this very personal experience with no more than 8 total people.

It was an enjoyable excursion. We have been to the location before and wanted to do something besides a beach excursion. The guide and driver were great and both wineries we toured were nice.
