The city of Guanajuato, Mexico, has been chosen to host the 31st Concours mondial de Bruxelles, one of the world's most prestigious wine competitions. The main session of the event, dedicated to red and white wines, will take place in the modern and industrial city of León on June 7, 8 and 9, 2024. This is the first time the WBC will be exported to the American continent. . . 

Guanajuato has become a major player in the Mexican wine industry, thanks in part to its rich history and ideal climate for growing grapes. As the site of Mexican national independence, Guanajuato is deeply connected to Mexican culture and heritage.

It ranks fifth nationally in terms of vineyard progression, with 485 hectares planted and more than 100 hectares in the pipeline, representing 4.5% of the national area dedicated to the production of quality wines. The state of Guanajuato is also the fifth largest grape producer in Mexico and ranks fourth in total wine production.

Guanajuato is very dynamic with 46 wine projects, 34 wineries that make up the Guanajuato Grape and Wine Association and 25 wine tourism projects.

Each year, Guanajuato produces more than 1,240,000 liters of wine from varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, Nebbiolo, Semillon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The more than 70 medals obtained in the main European competitions endorse the quality of its wines.

A land with a long winemaking tradition
Guanajuato can boast a rich winemaking heritage that dates back to colonial times. The Spanish "conquistadors" and missionaries introduced the first European vines, which were planted from north of present-day Mexico City to Guanajuato.
