Did you know Mexico is the oldest wine-growing region in the Americas?
That’s right! Wine has been produced in Mexico since the early 1500s when the Spanish conquistadors and missionaries colonised what was then the Aztec Empire.
Today, there are more than 150 wineries and more than 1200 different labels cultivated around 6500 hectares of land. Slowly, Mexican wines are getting noticed throughout the world.
At El Gusano Taqueria we want to give you the most authentic experience, so you can now try some of them right here! We’ve sourced some delicious wines from the Valle de Guadalupe region, where almost 90% of Mexican wine is being produced – please see details below! We hope you enjoy them as much as we do! Salud!
