Baja California wines sweep medals at the Brussels World Contest

For the fourth consecutive year, the state of Baja California has held its place as Mexico’s most awarded wine region

The recent international wine contest – “Concours Mondial de Bruxelles” – was held in the city of Chihuahua on February 24-26th and to the surprise of many, Mexico not only won several categories but swept over 140 awards in total – the most ever by Mexico – lead by the northwestern state of Baja California with 67 awards.

Mexico is a relatively small wine producer in comparison to other regions but over the years the country has taken its place on center stage in international competitions.

The Concours Mondial de Bruxelles recognized the Mexican wines of Baja California with 8 Great Gold medals, 29 Gold medals and 30 Silver medals of different labels, all hailing from the northern valley regions of the state. 

Here is a list of the Baja California wines that took the highest awards:

Luna del Valle Sombra 2016 from Cavas Valmar
Eclipse Tinto 2018 from El Cielo Winery
Corona Merlot Reserva 2015 from Bodega Corona del Valle
Monte Xanic Selección 2019 from Monte Xanic
Mundano Reserva Merlot 2015 from Vinícola Mundano
Enoteca Rocha Zazueta Mezcla Bordelesa Gran Reserva 2012 from Viñas de la Erre
Chateau Camou Merlot 2017 from Chateau Camou
Tinto de la Hacienda 2016 from Hacienda La Lomita

Baja California wine growers are blessed with good soil, exceptional climate and a wide variety of grapes – each with its own unique characteristics.

And with the help of talented and experienced winemakers, sommeliers and producers, they are increasingly positioning the wines of the Baja region on the international market.
