Ensenada Wine Tour

Recommended Posts

We are in Ensenada on a Coastal Cruise in February '24.  Looking to do a private wine tour.  The ship offers one but we did a ship tour last year and this repeats one of the wineries.  Has anyone done a private tour with a company you would recommend?  Thanks.

Check viator.com and search wine tours in Ensenada.  You should find a few in there that have good ratings.

Thanks.  I did see some tours there and others on line.  Was just hoping someone had personal experience with a tour/guide.

Couples Tour is the name of the one we did and Josue was our driver both times.  He is awesome and you can ask for him too.

We are doing that tour later this month.  Did you choose wineries before hand?

We picked a few and our driver picked one.  Here are some of the ones we have visited (note: we have done this excursion twice so these are across two trips).  Magoni - The inside tour was just okay...outside tasting area was really cool.  Bruma - One of the nicest wineries we have been to.  Great tour and an incredible restaurant with tapas on the property.  You need a reservation for this one.   Our driver (Josue') knew someone working the desk and called and got us in.  Xecue' - Just a tasting room and a nice patio.  Tasted 5 of their wines.  Nice setting.  Next trip we went to Monte Xanic - Nice tour and sat on the patio for our tasting.  Nice property.  The next stop was Clos de Tres Cantos.  No tour on this one but a nice setting/view for the tasting.  They also paired the wines with chocolates that were fantastic.  The last one was Vena Cava.  Really cool story and venue.   They also have a food truck on site.  Good luck and enjoy!

Thx.  These are most of the same ones we thought would be good from watching You Tube videos!

We did a private wine tour several years ago. It was very good. I believe we used Baja California Wine Tours.

They are one of the better known ones in the area.  There was a problem last year with a bunch of unlicensed tour operators taking people and the transit police cracked down hard.  They were pulling over vehicles, kicking everybody out, and towing the vehicles.

Can you explain more?  Did they pull over taxis or private cars?  Did you see this in Valle or down in Ensenada?
