The Best Vineyards to Visit in Parras, Mexico

Parras, a small pueblo mágico in the underrated northern state of Coahuila, is also one of the country’s most overlooked (and excellent) wine producing regions. While it may not rival the other northern Mexican wine region, the Valle de Guadalupe, it certainly puts up a fight when it comes to quality. Here are the best wineries you need to visit in Parras, Mexico.

Casa Madero

It’s a no-brainer to kick off this list with Casa Madero, given that it’s the oldest winery in the Americas. Originally founded way back in the 16th century by the Spanish, Casa Madero has continued to produce some stellar wines (which are now certified organic) right through to the present day; their wines include both reds and whites, including Malbecs and Chardonnays. A big plus point in the favour of visiting Casa Madero (as if there weren’t enough already) is that there’s also a hacienda on site, so you can extend your visit into an overnight stay.

An alternative Coahuilan winery option in Parras comes in the form of the rather more modern Bodega Rivero González, where you can take an informative and in-depth vineyard tour as well as try out some of their creations. You’ll have to reserve in advance though. However, the real appeal of visiting this spot comes with the annual August arrival of the Grape Festival in Parras, as Bodega Rivero González host their own unique event, the Cosecha Mágica festival.

While you must stop by the Don Leo Vineyard for the wine alone, you should also prepare yourself for the spectacular surrounds too. After all, Don Leo Vineyard is at a pretty impressive altitude of 7000+ feet and looks over the Coahuila desert. Sure, drinking wine is always great, but isn’t it that much better with an incredible view? While here, be sure to sample the kosher wine.

Shock factor certainly comes into play with one of Bodega El Vesubio’s wines, given that it’s named (appropriately or blasphemously, depending on your outlook) Sangre de Cristo, a.k.a. Blood of Christ. However, don’t be lulled into thinking that the wine of Bodega El Vesubio is a one-hit wonder, as this vineyard also produces a number of red dessert wines and even a bottle of sherry or two.

Finally, we round off our guide to Coahuila’s wine region with the Bodega Segovio Fuantos. Another of the Parras Valley’s family-run wine businesses, this vineyard has transformed from a small, local business to a thriving winery that now produces some 8,000 bottles annually. As with the Bodega mentioned above, Bodega Segovio Fuantos is predominantly in the sweet red wine business too.
