Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico
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 we have honored the vision of the missionaries over these lands, and we 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.
