Even though vineyards were planted as early as the 1500s, Mexico does not produce much TABLE WINE, mainly because its climate isn't particularly suited for wine grapes. Nor do Mexicans drink much wine-beer is the beverage of choice. Most Mexico-made wine is usually FORTIFIED or further distilled and turned into brandy. Some European grape varieties are grown for table wines, and are planted in the northern part of the country in areas like Baja California.
