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 as well as 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.

Pleasantly surprised. We didn’t know what to expect, heard mixed comments from fellow cruisers. First stop was fine, a smaller winery with a market, clean / comfortable. The second was a large scale winery, very impressive, pleased at this place. The guide was great, sorry can’t remember his name. We preferred this smaller group tour over the large group, we paid less, but we didn’t receive a free bottle of wine and the small group felt like a private tour. We recommend this excursion.

We visited the same vineyards that the ship excursion did without the 60 other people. Our tour had 7 people so we got to the sites before the larger groups. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the region and knew the locals. Our small group got personalized attention at each stop.

I truly enjoyed this tour. The tour operator(s) were very knowledgeable about the operation of the wineries as well as the wines. The information provided to the guests on the tour was excellent; we (especially myself) learned a great deal on how wine is produced and, more importantly, I learned HOW to drink wine properly. This tour was truly a treat! I will highly recommend this tour to anyone seeking information regarding it. Thank you.
Had a great trip to the Wineries , love the facts that were given. The two wineries that were chosen where is different. Would so go again.

This was a very nice to tour. The guide was a really nice person. He explained things in a nice friendly manner. Things were organized, yet relaxed. There were 5 of us on tour, so not packed or rushed like it would have been if we had gone on a bus tour from ship.
