Despite being the first wine producer in the Americas, Mexico has not been distinguished for the quality of its wine. But the industry here has undergone a revolution since Mexico opened its market to wine imports in 1986, and in recent years Mexican wineries have tried hard to prove that their products are world-class. They have been entering--and winning--international competitions in London, Bordeaux and Los Angeles. They are exporting to Germany, Holland, some U.S. cities and even Spain.
