Mexico

Producing wines in Mexico is carried out mainly in the States of Baja California, Aguascalientes, Coahuila, Chihuahua, Queretaro, Nuevo Leon and Zacatecas, but mostly in the Valle de Guadalupe, since it is situated on the northern fringe of the wine, where the climatic conditions are very favorable. In 2007, the production of Mexican wine, ranked 108 000 tonnes, making Mexico occupied the twenty-fourth place worldwide, according to figures from the FAO. Mexican wine and its wine region, are experiencing a strong boom while the per capita consumption of wine in the country is very low (.16 litres per year). Distinguished Mexicans who consume wine are between thirty and older, and have a high economic level. However, they drink mainly imported wines. In fact, only 40% of the wines produced in Mexico are consumed by Mexicans. In the year of 2002, about 42 000 hectares of vines were cultivated in Mexico, thus having, a increase in production in nine litre wine boxes. This gave a total, a two hundred million boxes, of which only 200 000 were exported to 27 different countries. A. Verastegui hold.mx original author and source of the article
