Mexican wines on Wikipedia

Mexican wine has a distinguished history. Mexico is the oldest wine-making region in the Americas:[citation needed] production began in 1597 when Spanish missionaries and settlers came across the gifted Parras valley in what is now the northern state of Coahuila, where they found abundant water and profusion of native vines. Today, the Valle de Parras in Coahuila is the country's second larger wine-making region after the Valle de Guadalupe in Baja California. Although it is mostly produced and consumed in Northern Mexico, the wine industry in Mexico is believed to be one of the world's fastest growing in the next years, however is still limited and less consumed in the Central and Southern Mexican states, where the wine industry never had the same success than in the northern part of the country.

There are several Mexican wines which have achieved important international recognitions and received medals for their outstanding quality, such as Santo Tomás, Monte Xanic, L.A. Cetto, Chateau Camou and Vinos Casa de Piedra.
