Mexico Wine Country

When talking about alcoholic beverages, Mexico is immediately associated with tequila or refreshing beer; but did you know that you can also have local Mexican wine? Indeed, Mexico is the oldest wine-growing country of the entire American continent, as Spanish conquerors brought vines from Europe in the 16th century. Today, the Mexico wine country counts more than 2,500 hectares of vines.

History of the Mexico Wine Country

It was governor Hérnan Cortes brought vines from Spain to Mexico and planet grapes to celebrate the conquest of the Aztec Empire. Successively, Charles II blocked the production of wine in the Spanish colonies; the prohibition lasted until Mexico’s Independence in 1821. However, the production only increased during the 1980s but had to face a lot of international competition and the export rates have always neem pretty low.

Wine Tourism in the Mexico Wine country

If you are a wine enthusiast visiting Mexico, don’t forget to hit the “Ruta del Vino”, the official wine route of Baja California. A signposted road connects almost fifty excellent wineries. In the Valle de Guadalupe, which is part of the Baja California wine region, there is also “El Museo de la Vid y del Vino” (Museum of the Vine and the Wine).

Wine tourism is becoming very popular around Mexico, especially in the Baja California wine region. Wineries have opened to tourists and offer them high-quality wine tastings and cellar tours.

Mexican Wine Regions

The Baja California wine region produces 90% of Mexican wines. Inside the Baja California wine region, the Valle de Guadalupe is the real wine-making centre of the Mexico wine country. This wine region profits from the breeze of the Pacific Ocean, and being over the 30° parallel, grapes are perfect to produce full-body and dark coloured wines.

Other less popular Mexican wine regions are Sonora, Cohauila, Durango, Zucatecas, Aguascalientes area, and Querétaro.
