Mexico

Those thirsty conquistadores weren’t going to go without wine so they kicked off wine production as early as 1521! This is the earliest of any country in the Americas. In truth however, Mexico’s modern wine industry only dates from the last 30 years or so, much of it the result of considerable investment from Spain. Baja California, just south of the US border, has the greatest area under vine, with temperatures tempered a little by the proximity of the Pacific Ocean. The vine-covered Guadalupe Valley is only 1½ hours’ drive south from the high jinks border town of Tijuana, but there are other vineyards down towards Mexico City, but they need to be at higher, cooler elevations.
