Mexican Wine, the oldest wine of the new world!
Mexican wine has been produced since the beginnings of the sixteen hundreds when Spain was occupying what today is known as Mexico and which was named New Spain after the arrival of Cristopher Columbus in 1492.
In the north region of the country, in what today is Coahuila State, a valley in the middle of the dessert called Parras, started to grow its own grapes. These grapes were not domesticated wine grapes, meaning, that they could not be harvested to produce wine. When the Spaniards discovered this amazing event, they decided to bring grapes from the Old World and cultivate them in the New World.
