Went to the Valle de Guadalupe over the weekend and was excited to check out Santo Tomas. The tasting room is relatively small but very nice. We arrived early enough where we thought, "perfect timing" we sat down and after about 10 minutes someone told us they'd be right with us. 20 minutes later it's like we were non existent.... More

What exceptional wines. Walked out with 6 bottles of wine. The most wine we can get back across the boarder. Edwardo was superb! No reason to go anywhere else for wine tasting!

We went on a great wine tasting experience with WHALES OF BAJA R. V. CARAVANS that included whale watching and wine tasting, the sensory wine tasting was a new type of wine tasting we had never participated in before. R.V. caravaning and wine tasting a great combo.

I took my wife to get a some wines from Bodegas de Santo Tomas. I was expecting to find someone that could advise us, gives some information on the wines, and explain the characteristics of the wines. Unfortunately, this place reminded me of a liquor store, with two workers checking out people and using the computer.

Easy location in Ensenada, if you don't have the time to explore the Guadalupe Valley or the vineyard south of Maneandero. Immaculate wine tasting room that was once the office of one of the Mexican Presidents in 1930. Still has the original floors and a huge vault of the time period. And the wines! Rich and full of heart. Don't... More

This is the oldest winery in the Baja with some wonderful history. My husband speaks Spanish, so we were able to read the signage that was only in Spanish. We also asked a number of questions about the history before a large group came in from the cruise ship. They had 4 wines to taste - 3 of them sweeter.... More

I've read about Santo Tomas being the oldest vineyard/winery in Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico so I was interested in checking out this place to see if I'd find a couple of bottles of wine not readily available in Milwaukee and I could share with my dinner club. None of the reds available for testing interested me so I decided to... More

Don't stop here if your a cheapo! This is a good historic winery and it will cost you a few bucks for a great memorable experience. Have some wine, have some cheese and crackers... When you got your wine legs going take a walk among the vines. Enjoy!!😜
