Our Story

With the mission of
promoting the wines of Baja California, México.

1690-1779
CONQUEST
The wine history in Mexico evidently starts with the conquest. In the Baja Californian Peninsula the arrival of the Jesuits at the start of the XVIII century set the tone in the vine growing until they were replaced by the franciscans and finally by the dominicos around the half of the XVIII century, who continued with this activity and opened new missions.
1780-1848
MISSIONS
They were grounded on the zone that today is known as “The wine route”: The San Vicente Ferrer’s mission, founded in 1780 in the San Vicente’s Valley; the Santo Tomas de Aquino’s mission, founded by father Fray Jose Loriente between 1791 and 1794 in the Santo Tomas’ Valley; and the Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe’s mission, buited between 1834 and 1840 in the Guadalupe’s Valley.
1849-1890
FIRST WINERIE
The Santo Tomas de Aquino’s mission was abandoned on 1849. The estate was bought by Francisco Andonaegui and Miguel Omart in 1888 who founded Bodegas de Santo Tomas, Baja California’s first winery.
1905-1917
RUSSIAN COLONY
The arrival of the russians molokans to the Guadalupe’s Valley was another event that inevitably contributed cultural value. At first, they cultivated wheat and Barley for personal* consumption, however, they were forced to experiment with different crops and and towards the year of 1917 the first russian vineyard was planted on the Guadalupe’s Valley.
1920-1933
PROHIBITION
Thanks to the promulgation of the law that banned the fabrication and selling of alcoholic drinks in United States, the Baja Califonia’s economy was favored with an increase on tourism and with the orders of the vid derived drinks, at the same time new wineries emerge.
1934-1959
INDUSTRIALIZATION
By 1950 there were around 12 wineries in Baja California. The companies that were already producing wine industrially were: Bodegas de Santo Tomás, Bodegas Miramar, Bodegas Terrasola (Formex Ybarra) y Bodegas Urbiñón in the Ensenada’s Valleys; Vinícola Regional, Bodegas Cetto y Bodegas Murúa Martínez in Tijuana; Bodegas de Rancho Viejo, La Providencia y Vinícola de Tecate in Tecate.
1969-2000
DEVELOPMENT
Between 1960 and 1970 the big wine companies were established in the Ensenada’s valleys: Casa Domecq and L.A. Cetto. Despite the economic crisis in the country, the international competition and the elevated taxation, an exceptional phenom emerges in Baja California. Even when a few wineries disappear, another tiny wineries oriented to produce quality wines born in Ensenada in the early 90’s such as: Monte Xanic, Casa de Piedra, Château Camou, Viñas de Liceaga, Cavas Valmar, Mogor Badán and Vinos Bibayoff.
TODAY
Nowadays, our valleys harbor more than a hundred wine houses; high technology winemaking projects, refining in their process and an excellent quality on their wines, characteristics that have led Baja California to position as the most prolific zone of the National wine culture.
For the conservation and development
