Where to Go Wine Tasting in Baja


Top Spots for Wine Tasting in Baja California

If you’re in San Diego for any length of time and love wine, you may want to venture further afield to the Baja peninsula in Mexico, less than an hour to the south of San Diego. There, the Guadalupe Valley (Valle de Guadalupe) is a prime wine-producing region with over 100 wineries and bottles that rival California’s Central Coast. Leading San Diego Airport hotel, Pacific Inn Hotel & Suites, suggests the following wineries.

Vinas de Garza, Rancho Mogorcito

Towards the middle of Route 3 that runs between Ensenada and Tecate, you’ll find Rancho Mogorcito, where Vinas de Garza offers a stunning wine tasting experience with the flavor of true Mexico. While only in business since 2003, the Garza winery has become a top destination on the Ruta del Vino in Baja. While well known for their wide selection of flavorful red blends, they also offer a white blend and a Chardonnay. No reservations are required for groups less than eight people, and a flight will set you back just $8-12.

Bibayoff Vinos, Rancho Toros Pintos

When you first see the classic onion domes on the sign for Bibayoff, you may be tempted to think, “What? Russian wines?” But while the Bibayoff winery has technically only been in business since 1992, the family has been growing grapes in the region for over a half century. The winery is run by descendants of Russian immigrants and the tasting room reflects a funky mix of Russian art and rustic Mexican thrifty chic. Bibayoff offers a couple of signature wines: a Chenin Blanc/Columbard/Muscat blend and a Nebbiolo that is a perennial favorite. Their romantic tasting room is open Tuesday-Sunday, 10am-4pm and pricing varies.

Adobe Guadalupe, El Porvenir

While LA Cetto and Santo Thomas have the biggest commercial business, Adobe Guadalupe is making a name for itself with serious oenophiles and gourmet chefs across Mexico and Southern California. Not only do they grow their own grapes, but they raise Azteca horses and run a gorgeous, serene inn as well. The wines, tasted in a brick room adjoining the barrels, are all named for angels, and they are truly heavenly, particularly the red blends. Tastings are available with tour by reservation most days of the week, or without a reservation (minus the tour) for about $10.

Emeve, El Porvenir

Just up the road from Adobe Guadalupe, Emeve offers a perfect counterpoint from the same wine maker. There, you can sit on their little stone patio and gaze out at the vineyards or cluster around their indoor bar to learn about their one-of-a-kind Viogniers, Grenache and red blends, including their signature Los Nietos. Bring your own snack or enjoy their special cheese covered in a charred pepper crust, which stands up nicely to their full-bodied wines. Their schedule changes with the seasons, so check ahead for tasting hours. Three full pours can be had in their flights for about $12, and you can pick from a variety of combinations.

It’s best to plan on paying with cash in Baja, and businesses there all accept both pesos and American dollars. You can enter Mexico at a number of points, but to get to the Guadalupe Valley, it may be easiest to cross at Tecate and follow the signs to Ensenda once in Mexico. Once on the road to Ensenada, you’ll see plenty of signage to the Ruta del Vino. If you don’t want to drive yourself, there are frequent wine tasting tours by bus from San Diego. Just don’t forget to bring your passport to re-enter the US.

Things San Diego Does Better Than Anywhere Else


The Best Things in San Diego

Next time you visit the vibrant city of San Diego, indulge in some unique experiences that you can only find here. In fact, before even booking a cheap SAN hotel, take a moment to think about the one-of-a-kind things San Diego does better than anywhere else.

1. Craft Beer Tasting
San Diego is home to 90 craft breweries—yes, 90–which surely makes it a destination for all beer lovers. Come and explore as many as you can by taking a brewery tour and sampling delicious local beers.

2. Growing Wildflowers
If you are in San Diego during spring, the drive to Carlsbad is worth the breathtaking sight. The Flower Fields of Carlsbad boast 50 acres of ranunculus flowers every spring. This unique attraction is a must-see for all nature lovers and makes for a very romantic (and cheap) date.

3. Ghost Tours
Believe it or not, San Diego has several nationally known haunted locales. You can explore the landmark Hotel del Coronado at night, cruise through the Whaley House in Old Town, drive down Proctor Valley Road, or take a guided ghost tour to learn more about the paranormal activities in the city.

4. Fish Tacos
San Diego restaurants and taco shops truly offer the best tasting fish tacos in the region, hands down. Check out a few local “Best of” lists to narrow down your search for the tastiest.

5. International Shopping
You can actually enjoy shopping in Mexico just by walking across the Mexican border and traveling to Tijuana from San Diego. The dollar goes further there and you can usually find some one-of-a-kind items. Apart from the quaint boutiques and craft stalls, you will also find a huge premium outlet just this side of the boarder.

6. Whale watching
Take a boat ride and watch giant gray whales migrate from December to April, and watch Blue whales migrate from mid-June through September. These giant creatures migrate from Alaska every year to spend time in the warm waters of San Diego and Baja. You can also watch them from land at the Cabrillo National Monument.

7. Food and Wine Festivals
Thanks to the accommodating weather, San Diego hosts food and wine festivals frequently throughout the year. The San Diego Food and Wine Festival is by far the biggest celebration, where festivalgoers enjoy sampling regional cuisine and wine, meeting celebrity chefs, and participating in workshops.

Flying Solo in San Diego? Try These 8 Activities


Fun Activities for Solo Travelers in San Diego

There are few cities in the U.S. that are as perfect for solo travel as San Diego. From the friendly locals to the huge selection of activities and events, folks flying solo to SD are sure to have fun, meet new people, and feel safe while doing both.

1. Sign Up for a Cooking Class at Hipcooks

Meet some new friends while learning to cook some delightful dishes at the same time. Classes are reasonably priced at $60 and include a wide range of options, from Cajun cuisine to flavorful Japanese favorites. You have to sign up for classes in advance, so you’ll want to be sure to book a class as soon as your travel plans are confirmed.

2. Browse the Boutique Shops or People Watch on Kettner Boulevard

If you’re staying at a hotel in San Diego’s Little Italy, do a little browsing and maybe a little shopping, too. You’ll discover an eclectic selection of boutique shops on Kettner Boulevard offering everything from contemporary furniture and fashion accessories to affordable wall art and unique collectables. Or, you can head over to 98 Bottles, Kettner Exchange, or Waterfront to partake in some local craft beer while doing a little people watching.

3. Buy a Club Crawl San Diego Ticket

Immerse yourself in some of the top clubs in San Diego’s iconic Gaslamp Quarter by buying a ticket for the SD Club Crawl. For $25, you get access to four clubs in one night, all of which are walking distance to several Gaslamp hotels in San Diego. You’ll also make new friends and might even find some other solo travelers.

4. Kayak Along the San Diego Coast

Looking for some solo adventure in SD? You can conveniently rent a kayak and any other supplies you need around at almost any waterfront area or in Seaport Village. La Jolla is noted for its caves, but you can pretty much kayak anywhere along the SD coast. La Jolla is also a good spot to grab lunch or relax in the sun.

5. Take the Winery Train Tour

A typical tour includes stops at various SD wineries, some tasty samples, a light lunch, prizes and games, some background info on San Diego and its association with the wine industry, wine making tips, a look at the wine making process and a casual train ride through one of the most scenic regions on the West Coast. The guides are friendly and knowledgeable, so you definitely get your money’s worth.

6. Run, Walk or Jog in and Around the City

There’s no better way to explore SD on your own than to take advantage of the many trails and pathways throughout the city. Run along the embarcadero and see Seaport Village, jog through Balboa Park to explore the cultural heart of the city, or hit the boardwalk and grab a drink at a beachfront bar after.

7. Visit Spanish Village in Balboa Park

If you’re on your own in San Diego, consider a visit to the collection of artisan shops in Balboa Park known as Spanish Village where you’re free to take your time browsing and chatting with the friendly craftspeople. You’ll find a bunch of handmade trinkets and other goodies that can serve as a reminder of your trip to SD.

8. Stop By the San Diego Museum of Art

Since you’re visiting on your own, you’re free to take as long as you wish to soak up the sights, ask questions to the courteous staff members or even chat with artists who may be on-site setting up their exhibits. The museum also hosts special events throughout the year, including Art Alive every spring.

The 6 Types of San Diegan’s You’ll Meet During Your Visit


San Diego's Top Personalities

San Diego entices people from all over the world, turning the city into a mini melting pot of unique personas and eclectic characters. Here’s a look at six types of people you’ll see around the city that help give San Diego its je ne sais quoi.

Fitness Fanatic Guy

There’s not an ounce of fat in this guy’s diet and none on him either. He’s the hunk you saw running through Torrey Pines in the morning and again in the evening. He’s also frequently spotted jogging along the embarcadero near SDCC hotels and over the convention center stairs.

Surfer Dude

Surfer Dudes are ubiquitous in San Diego, hanging out everywhere from Ponto Beach and Leucadia to Bird Rock and Ocean Beach. Chances are, he owns a chocolate Lab, a pickup truck or SUV, and his own biz that lets him catch waves whenever he wants. He feels a little nervous about that “No Kooks” t-shirt, though, because he’s secretly from Jersey and has done his fair share of dropping in on people who grew up here.

Yogis and Crossfitters

With a yoga studio, crossfit studio, or free yoga meet-up group on almost every corner in San Diego, they’re pretty easy to spot. Yoga pants and green juice are a way of life, and they will happily engage anyone, anytime, anywhere on all things related to health and fitness.

Student Transplant

San Diego County has five big universities, half a dozen or so junior colleges, and tons of technical schools, making the student transplant a very popular species in the city. They’re most often spotted between Pacific Beach and Mission Beach, or partying it up at Gaslamp Quarter hotels. We don’t really need to say more, you’ll know this type when you see them.

Fun Baby Boomers

They grew up here or migrated in the ’70s because they felt trapped in their hometown. Now that the kids are out of the house, they’re making up for lost time and can often be spotted out and about on the weekends at the best restaurants, newest bars, or even dancing at the club. The barely-legal youngsters roll their eyes, not realizing the fun baby boomers give more business to the establishment than them and all their friends combined.

Young Immortals

They have perpetual tans, perfect white teeth, great hair, and new cars. You can’t quite figure out where these people get their money from, but they’ve got a lot of it and love to spend it on liquor and luxury items. They’re usually the ones ordering rounds, expensive champagne, sporting a new Gucci bag every month, and partying until the sun comes up.

San Diego wouldn’t be San Diego without its many distinctive residents from all walks of life. Want to experience the San Diego charm for yourself? Reserve a room at the Pacific Inn Hotel & Suites in San Diego and come see what we mean. We have 24/7 customer service, a great location, and even better rates. Call us at 1-800-571-2933 and a Reservation Manager can help you book a room today.

Grab a Drink at These Rooftop Bars in San Diego


San Diego's Best Rooftop Bars

There’s nothing quite like tossing back a beer or sipping flavorful wine while under the brilliant pinks, oranges, and blues of a classic San Diego sunset. Swing by one of San Diego’s best rooftop bars and get a better understanding of why we’re okay paying sky-high rent prices.

Kettner Exchange

A highlight of San Diego’s Little Italy neighborhood is Kettner Exchange. It’s just around the corner from a few cheap Little Italy hotels, has a uniquely nautical vibe and high-powered telescope, and offers some seriously creative cocktails like the Artichoke Hold, Chartreuse Swizzle, and the Que Onda.

Glass Door

Offering an amazing view of the San Diego Marina, Glass Door sets a new standard for rooftop bars. Their menu offers just about every type of seafood that swims in the ocean, one-of-a-kind craft cocktails, and their panorama is truly unbeatable.

Lounge Six

The rooftop bar of Hotel Solamar, a premier Gaslamp Quarter hotel, offers everything from a pool and cabanas to fire pits. You’ll be transported to a tropical paradise right in the middle of San Diego. Try the Red Queen, it’s a local favorite made with Bombay sapphire and jasmine tea syrup.

Altitude Sky Lounge

The breathtaking view from 22 floors up is only one of the perks of the Altitude Sky Lounge. In addition to a well-stocked bar and a rotating door of private DJs, you’ll also have the chance to participate in themed nights, upscale parties and other “to-do” events.

SummerSalt Rooftop Pool and Lounge

With creative cocktails and a fun, youthful crowd, SummerSalt is the place to see and be seen in San Diego. It even offers a pool for an evening soak, though you might want to wait 30 minutes after downing one of their special tequila mixes!

The Wood

Part bar, part club, the Wood is where you’ll want to go to enjoy drinks, dancing and all other kinds of daytime or late-night fun. Located in Pacific Beach, the attire is casual with plenty of bikinis and board shorts roaming around in the warm weather.

When you’re throwing a few bathing suits in your luggage, don’t forget to add one or two nicer items—most of these places have a swanky vibe once the sun goes down. You also don’t want to forget to book a cheap hotel in Downtown San Diego, like the Pacific Inn Hotel & Suites. Our discounts and great, low rates means more money in your pocket for the fun stuff. We also keep fresh coffee and tea brewing 24/7, offer free Wi-Fi, and just recently remodeled our rooms to maximize space and comfort.

Aero Club – Mission Hills

With more than eight-hundred glistening glass bottles of whiskey adorning the walls, this historical bar has a reputation for serving the best mixed drinks in the U.S.A.
