Are you planning a trip to Los Cabos and want to try some of the region’s top wines? For the ultimate Mexican wine experience, you can book and join the most popular tours with wine tasting Cabo San Lucas is known for.
Local Cabo Wineries
Although the Mexican wine industry dates back to the 1500s, little is known about local viticulture and the Mexican wine market’s ecology. The Baja region produces the majority of Mexico’s wine.
Some of the world’s most discriminating wine connoisseurs seek out Mexican wines, notably those from Baja California. Baja California produces around 90% of all Mexican wine grapes. San Vicente Valley, Santo Tomas Valley, and San Antonio de las Minas are among the wine-producing areas.
The Baja Region produces the majority of Mexico’s wine. Although Cabo is considered part of Baja, we are referring to the Northern portion of Baja California, specifically the Valle de Guadalupe in Ensenada, in this context.
Bodegas Santo Tomas, the first winery in Baja, was founded in 1888 on the former Dominican Santo Tomas Mission’s vineyard. In the mid-1990s, the Baja wine industry had a resurgence of quality.
In Baja, at least 25 vineyards are now in operation. Domecq, Monte Xanic, Bodegas Santo Tomas, and L.A. Cetto are the four largest. Several boutique wineries are presently manufacturing high-value wines in small quantities. Chateau Camou, Casa de Piedra, and Adobe Guadalupe are among the boutique wineries.
The vineyards in Baja are expanding at an incredible rate. Valle de Guadalupe, Santo Tomas Valley, San Vicente Valley, Calafia Valley, and to a lesser extent, the San Rafael Valley are all located near Ensenada. Approximately 1000 feet above sea level is the average altitude.

Every year, travelers flock to the Baja California region, especially in August for the Grape Harvest Fiestas. It’s a custom that dates back to the 1990s. Wine tastings, concerts, and, of course, authentic Mexican cuisine are all typical events.
