Export opportunities for Mexican wines


Park Street Imports is a fully licensed, service based US wine and spirits importer.  We work differently from a traditional importer.  Most traditional importers mark their products up 40-50%, but we charge a small by the case fee of $3.25 to legally fulfill all of your orders through the US Three Tier System and collect the funds due on your behalf.  Many wineries are finding this to be a much more profitable alternative when selling into the US market.
  
In these hard economic times, many wineries are finding our services to be a great option in our market.  Please let me know if you are interested in discussing further to see if we can be of assistance to any one of you.

Best Regards,

Brandy Beverung

Discover the Mexican Wine regions : Laguna

Wine production, including quality wines, continues in these areas of Mexico as well, most notably in the La Laguna region, which straddles the states of Coahuila and Durango in the northeast; this is the home of the Parras Valley, the first appellation recognized by the Mexican government. Half of Mexico’s vineyards are in Sonora.

A history of Mexico's wine regions.


This post is meant only to give a brief history of winemaking in Mexico. And for those whose interest is piqued, a book introducing the wines and wine regions of Mexico, pairing them with Mexican cuisine, and offering traditional step-by-step recipes will be published later this year. I will announce the release of the book when it is available; feel free to contact me with any questions about content or availability.

Discover wines from Mexico


Wine From Mexico meaning Mexican wine and wine making began with the Spanish, who brought vines here from Europe. They found that grapevines did very well in the colony of New Spain (Mexico) and by the 17th century wine exports from Spain to the New World fell. In 1699, Charles II of Spain prohibited wine making in Mexico, with the exception of wine for Church purposes.[1] From then until Mexico’s Independence, wine was produced here only on a small scale.[2] After Independence, wine making for normal purposes was no longer prohibited and production rose, especially in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. However, the Mexican Revolution set back wine production, especially in the north of the country.[3] Wine production here has been rising in both quantity and quality since the 1980s although competition from foreign wines and 40% tax on the product makes competing difficult within Mexico.
