Ensanada Wine Country - Good Article

Just came across the 9/20/10 New York Post Article on the wine country-Ruta del Vino. We were there 2 weeks ago and it was like a mini Sonoma or Nappa Valley scene. How can you beat sitting outside is a pretty valley sampling all sorts of nice reds and whites. We stayed over a couple of nites right in Ensanada and just north at Las Rosas, Great trip, great value and friendly people. The biggest hassle was a rent a car for Mexico. Most companies advise in small print that you can not go or want to charge around $28 a day for ins. which doubles the cost of the rental. We finally found Becker rental by airport with good prices and $10 a day ins. He also picked us up at the Omni and let us do an airport dropoff. Don't be scared-go to Ensanada on a beautiful costal tollway.

Thanks for the link which is beyond my limited computer skills. I should add the comments about lack of signs is true so obviously daylite driving is a must. The Ensanada tripadvisor has good directions. Generally on the way south stay way right to get on tollway and on the way back keep left to border crossing. It takes one minute to cross going south and it took us almost an hour returning to US (with losts of vendors to keep you company!).

Yes, Ensenada has a lot of great destinations to visit both within the city and surrounding. You have great cabins you can rent in the Guadalupe Wine Valley, and tour La Cetto, Mexico's most infamous wine. You also have Las Canadas lake/camping ground nearby which has a zipline and canopy course. Of course, there's the La Bufadora, world's 2nd largest water blowhole nearby. And for the adventurer, there is Laguna Hanson and Guadalope Canyon Hotsprings, over an hour drive through the forest to get there, but amazing once you arive. Ensenada is a great sidetrip from San Diego, only an hour from the border. www.gringobajaguide.com

Hey Gringo, You know the area better than us but the 3 wineries we sampled were very similar in size and taste to Nappa or Sonoma. It was also a little sad to see resorts 3/4 empty because of the border stories. We were almost alone at Las Rosas just outside Ensanada with a balconey overlooking an infinity pool and crashing waves (at around $115 per nite with breakfast). Anyhow now we are trying to find some of the Mexican wines we sampled in western Illinois!
