A Trip to Ensenada, an Unparalleled Gastronomic Tour

September 09, 2016
The multiple character of Baja California has created a complex and unique food culture; here you will find everything from coastal cuisine, full of tasty seafood, to delicious vineyards and Baja Med cuisine. When visiting Ensenada, you will the gastronomic contrast between these two ecosystems. The road to the vineyards is full of culinary delights and delicious wines that not only include the Guadalupe Valley, but the Valley of San Antonio de las Minas and the Valley of St. Thomas. When you are on the road, we recommend visiting at least, L.A Cetto, Tres Valles, Chateau Camou, Monte Xanic and Cuatro Cuartos, the latter offers exquisite views of the Pacific Ocean. To start the tour in the vineyards, it is advisable to eat before, so we recommend trying the delicious menu of Finca Altozano, seasonal dishes are served here with local ingredients and harvested organically products -it is one of the best restaurants in Mexico without any doubt. Due to the wide range of wines and dishes, I suggest touring the wine route in two or three days and stay in one of the hotels in Ensenada, as it is very close to this wine region. If this is the first time going to the vineyards, we recommend going during the grape harvest. If you want to go in low season, visit between April and June or September. Stay at the Best Western El Cid hotel, and ensure a unique stay with unparalleled service, for more information or reservations, call 7500 904 01800.
