Baja's Wine and Cheese Route
Tour Participation Requirements
This is a 9-hour agro tour that will give you an inside look into two of the most successful commercial ventures from Mexico: cheese making and wine. Dress comfortably for this tour and be ready for a day of tasting cheese and wine.
The tour will start with a drive through the famous Wine and Cheese Route. The route is appropriately named for its cheese factories and vineyards. The finest cheeses in Mexico are made from cheese family factories such as the Ramonetti. Taste the variety of artisanal cheese produced in the factory such as Butter Ricotta, Pepper, and Romero.
At noon, break for lunch (at your own cost) at either the Puerto Novo or the Valle de Guadalupe. Enjoy traditional Mexican fares before continuing your tour in the afternoon to three wine-producing houses. We’ll take you to the outstanding facilities of these houses, learning about the specific bounties of each wine.
Cheese and Wine Factories Passed Over Generations
Most cheese and wine factories in Mexico are family-owned and handed down from generation to generation. The Guadalupe Valley in Baja California (Mexico) has 90 percent of the country’s wineries. The geographic and climatic conditions of the region allows the growth of small, intensely flavored grapes that make delicious wines. The wine producers have architecturally impressive wineries that stand beautifully in the high desert terrain of the Baja. Mexican food is usually served with a variety of wines. One of the most popular wine concoctions is the delicious Sangria, which is a mixture of red wine, a sweetener, chopped fruit and brandy.
