The origin of Santo Tomas is inextricably tied to the Spanish mission movement in Mexico. Whenever a new mission was established in the New World, vineyards were planted and sacramental wine was made. By the time they decided to found a mission just south of Ensenada, the Dominican order was in charge. In 1791 they named it the Mission of Saint Tomas Aquinas, located in what is today the Valle de Santo Tomas. This valley turned out to be a very favorable location for both the mission and sacramental wine production.
In 1857, the Mexican government expropriated all church property and the land was sold off. In 1888 it was bought by two Ensenada businessmen, Don Francisco de Andonegui and Don Miguel Ormart, who founded Bodegas de Santo Tomas and began to sell and distribute the wines in bulk directly to the various small towns of the region.
