Discover Baja’s beautiful wine country along Ruta del Vino, just east of Ensenada, a pastoral
paradise of hidden haciendas, alfresco eateries, and more than 100 vineyards. Talented chefs,
innovative winemakers and eco-conscious architects have turned this valley into a magical
place for epicurean adventures.
Spend the night in an African-style safari tent, wine
taste in beached fishing boats, soar through the sky
on their Desert Nest zip line, horseback ride, hike
and then head to their mountaintop lounge, Bura
Bura, for epic ocean views and dreamy top-of-the-world sunsets.
This boutique property blends the landscape with
organic design, and features stunning views, an
infinity pool, billiards room, and a mind-blowing
Alejandro D’Acosta–designed winery. It’s a tranquil
gem for an overnight stay in wine country.
This stunning campestre, a rustic, open-air eatery
helmed by famed chef Javier Plascencia, is an
unforgettable spot for a leisurely lunch of mesquite-
grilled octopus, beef cheek tacos and local wines. Relax
with a rosé on the banquettes atop the giant wine
barrels surrounded by vineyards and mountain vistas.

gourmet taquitos and tostadas from their food truck.
