Viñedos Aldo César Palafox
Located in the heart of the Antigua Ruta del Vino, in Ensenada, Baja California Mexico, the Aldo Cesar Palafox winery sticks to an old tradition originated centuries ago by the Spanish missionaries, who saw the goodness of this privileged land and followed the same path that leads to the family vineyards.
The family tradition of making wine dates back to the nineteenth century with artisan wine making for family consumption. In 1997, the plantation of noble grapes began as the base for a new wine project, and in 2009, a new subterranean cellar was incorporated to this project.
For more than three generations they have honored the vision of the missionaries over these lands, and they are recovering their wine tradition, incorporating the best techniques in winemaking to maintain quality. Being able to return the vocation to this region is improving our community and it is an honest way to pay tribute to the culture of making wine in Baja California.
Valle de la Grulla and Valle de Santo Tomas are part of the missionary route used by the Spanish colony since the seventeenth century. These valleys preserved the wine vocation of the area ever since. In Baja California, 13 missions were established between 1737 and 1834. The mission of Santo Tomas de Aquino, a few kilometers from the Aldo Cesar Palafox Winery, was established in 1791.
The La Grulla, Santo Tomas and San Vicente Valleys, have the oldest history of winemaking in Baja California, for this reason, the area inherited the name of “Antigua Ruta del Vino”. The grapes grown in Santo Tomas and in Valle de la Grulla carry the natural heritage of the region, contributing their properties of flavor and quality, to their wines.
