South-of-the-Border Wine Tour: Ensenada, Mexico
Why: There’s no better place for a beach-and-wine getaway than this city in Baja California that’s known as the Napa Valley of Mexico.
What to Do: There are more than 50 wineries to visit. Just make sure to stop at Casa de Piedra, with a stone barn that serves as the tasting room, and known for its tempranillos. For sand and surfable waves, San Miguel Beach is a sweeping strand 15 minutes from the city.
Where to Stay: Avoid the cruise-ship crowd and stay at Encuentro Guadalupe, just outside town, which has 20 private studio cabins – each with its own deck – on a desert hillside overlooking the 40-acre vineyard.Back to top
