San Miguel de Allende Wineries in Guanajuato, Mexico Offers Old World Charm in One of the World’s Most Celebrated Destinations

There are many famous wine regions around the globe that produce this famous nectar born from the delectable grape. But one new wine region is budding in San Miguel de Allende in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico offering a stunning backdrop and destination for vineyards and wine lovers. With surrounding views of the Sierra Madre mountain range this new Mexican wine region around San Miguel de Allende is about to take flight.

Europe, the U.S., Chile and Argentina are countries where high quality wines have long been made, and now Mexico is joining the ranks with regions such as Valle de Guadalupe in Baja California. Now, surprisingly, in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico, the world-class city of San Miguel de Allende is seeing a surge in new wineries being built in a climate that many winemakers consider ideal for grape growing.

The History of Wine in San Miguel de Allende and Mexico Vineyards has Rich Roots in Spanish-Colonial Culture

Wine making in Mexico began with the arrival of the Spanish in the mid-16th century. The Spanish brought vines from Europe to Mexico making Mexico the oldest wine-growing region in the Americas. Although there were indigenous grapes before the Spanish arrived, the Spaniards found Spanish grapevines from the homeland did very well in the dry and Mediterranean-like climate, similar to what you would find in the San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato wine region.

The Wine Region of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico is Ripe with Casual Elegance and World-Class Charm

Highly acclaimed wineries, lined by a wine route with delicious red and white varietals, are putting San Miguel del Allende and Guanajuato Mexico on the map of food and wine lovers across the globe. Can you say, “Vino, por favor”! Mexico produces and is associated with fresh fruits and vegetables that are exported around the globe, but wine in the land of generous people, white sand beaches and tequila? The answer is yes!

San Miguel de Allende, a World Heritage site and sought after world-class destination, offers wine lovers the opportunity to visit the surrounding San Miguel de Allende wineries in what is now being touted as the San Miguel de Allende Wine Country.

San Miguel de Allende wineries and its vineyards are over 6,000 feet above sea level, where the climate is dry with warm temperatures up into the 80’s while still having cool evenings, which is key to fine wines. Soil, climate and a long growing season make San Miguel de Allende’s wine country a new and emerging sensation in the area. This new aspect of San Miguel de Allende surrounded by its vineyards adds another layer to an already culturally rich and historic town.

This exceptional “Foodie” town is starting to rival the likes of Valle de Guadalupe, Chile, Napa and Sonoma. San Miguel de Allende wineries are springing up all around this magical town with many more wineries on the drawing board.

The Grape and Wine Association of Guanajuato Marks the Beginning of the Commitment to San Miguel de Allende as a World-Class Destination for Wineries and Vineyards

In 2014 the Grape and Wine Association of Guanajuato was formed as an initiative of the Secretary of Tourism of Guanajuato. Overseeing the new wine association is one of San Miguel de Allende’s finest wineries, Cuna de Tierra, with fourteen other representatives from various regions around Comonfort, San Miguel de Allende, Dolores Hidalgo and San Felipe. The goal of the consortium is to grow the recognition and awareness of wines in San Miguel and the development of a new wine route in the region around San Miguel. It has also set exceptional standards for wine making in the new San Miguel de Allende wine region.

For the thousands of visitors who come to San Miguel de Allende for the art, the culture and the spectacular weather each year, they can now also enjoy the added sophistication of wine tasting in San Miguel de Allende’s Wine Country.
