The Baja Cheese Cave Tour is one of our personal favorites. Located 40 kilometers from Ensenada, this famous, historical, and family owned cheese ranch has witnessed the traditional production process of cheese in the region since 1911. The cheeses are made from unpasteurized milk with no preservatives to give a distinguished craft flavor to the cheese. Currently the farm produces 400 kilos of cheese a day which can be tasted in their famous cava de queso (the largest cheese cave in Mexico and perhaps Latin America.) Here they produce other organic dairy products such as butter made with milk from their farm cows, fed the traditional way with no hormones or additives.
As part of our trip, visitors can enjoy a tour of the ranch area which includes the production of different cheeses, cattle breeding, the butter making process, as well as the ricotta cheese process. Guests are then invited to experience an underground cheese cave tour where they will enjoy a tasting of 7 cheeses, accompanied by wine, and tapas including freshly made jam. The cheese cave can store up to 10,000 cheeses and has a tasting area with seating of up to 40 people. To top it all off, you will enjoy a magnificent lunch at their famed restaurant located on the ranch as well. Guests will enjoy a menu of Mediterranean artisan cuts, cuisine, and wine that represent the best in the region. Along with the seal of the family in their wide variety of cheeses, breads, and spices.
Finally, before heading back to San Diego, the tour will take you to Valle de Guadalupe for a visit to one of the best local family owned wineries for more wine tasting and a tour of the wine making process. The cheese cave tour is a particular favorite of ours, and of guests, and is highly recommended.

This tour was recommended by a resort in Tecate and it did not disappoint. Our guide was professional, friendly and knowledgeable. We toured a nice variety of wineries and the place for lunch was fantastic. This exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend this tour company to anyone wanting to learn more about the wonderful wineries in Mexico. Salut!
High quality wineries and eatery. Excellent driver and guide. All inclusive wine tour was such a steal for the convenience, quality and fun time. I will definitely be returning.
Baja winery tour. This was our second tour with our driver Joaquin. This one was even better than the first, as he changed up our agenda. The lunch remained the same and was the hit of the day.
We were a group of 17 and did a private tour. It was outstanding – totally exceeded our expectations. The wine and food was excellent, Joaquin had everything under control and was more than happy to adjust on the fly to make sure we had a great time. Everything from the pick-up to crossing the border was a breeze. We will for sure do this again. I highly recommend.
Splurge – it was so worth it. Joaquin is amazing – the vineyards were perfect, the food amazing, the transport safe and clean, the company first class. Well worth every cent ❤️ We are already talking of a summer trip.
My group can’t say enough wonderful things about this wine tour – extremely knowledgeable guide, good variety of wine, delicious lunch, and fun group of people. There’s no way we would have been able to have this type of experience on our own and highly recommend this particular tour.
This tour group made everything very easy for us. We basically didn’t have to think about anything, so we just focused on having fun! The scenic stop was beautiful, the wineries were top notch, and the lunch was – I cannot stress this enough – phenomenal! 10/10 would recommend.
WHAT A GREAT TIME – best experience all around – from the beginning making the reservation to the follow up after the tour – they are HANDS DOWN THE BEST OVERALL TOUR COMPANY I have ever dealt with. Mario is AWESOME – well educated, cool and relaxed – he’ll make your time so enjoyable. There is no single complaint – i have never had a better “day” anywhere. they arranged the BEST LUNCH YOU WILL ALMOST EVER HAVE! Finca Andulcino or ?? it was superb – 6 or 7 courses – INCREDIBLE! Most details to come – but for now, if you are planning to go – it will not disappoint!
