Chateau Camou: 
Inspired by what he saw in the Monte Xanic winery, Ernesto Alvarez-Murphy Camou took his mother's maiden name, bought 1000 acres in 1995 and created Chateau Camou. Like Monte Xanic, Chateau Camou aims at creating top-quality wines and is considered one of Mexico's most modern and sophisticated wineries. 
It is best known for El Gran Vino Tinto, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The 1995 vintage won a silver medal in the 1998 Challenge International du Vin in Bordeax, France and the 1997 vintage picked up a silver medal at the 2000 Concours Mondial de Bruxelles in Belgium and a gold medal at the 2000 Wines of the Americas fair in Los Angeles. 
Chateau Camou offers tours Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon for US$3. For more information, call (011-52-646) 177-3303 or

Bodegas Santo Tomas: 
Open since 1888, this winery has been 
producing wine longer than any other 
winery in Mexico. It is best known for 
having joined California's Wente Vineyard 
to produce Duetto, a 50-50 Santo Tomas
Wente blend. It is also known for its Santo 
Tomás Reserva Unico. 
A tour through Ensenada's Bodegas de Santo Tomas (winery) is certainly recommended. You'll marvel at the history contained in this old building. Eventually you'll wind up in the tasting room. Inexpensive tastings and winery tours are offered six days a week by several of the Guadalupe Valley and Ensenada wineries. Others can be arranged by appointment.
The winery is open daily from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, call 
(011-52-646) 178-3333.
