It isn't wine that comes to mind when one thinks of Mexico. There's brandy -- one of the country's most popular liquors --,
tequila and beer. But wine? Traditionally, most grapes grown in Mexico have been used to produce brandy and altar wine for the Catholic church.
Mexicans still produce wine and export far more of the ever-popular tequila and beer. But wine consumption is indeed increasing, buoyed by a taste for fine wine among Mexican professionals in the bigger cities like Mexico City, Monterrey, Guadalajara etc.
