Located in central Mexico, the Querétaro region has a lengthy and rich history, with the first vines planted in 1531. Today, the wine industry is the second-most important in the state of the same name, drawing visitors from throughout the country and around the world. With an altitude of 2,000 meters (6,562 feet) above sea level, Querétaro winegrowers experience "extreme viticulture" in a semi-desertic climate, with temperatures reaching up to 35°C (95°F). Its terroir is comprised of clay soils layered over tepetate, a calcareous hardpan commonly found in volcanic regions of North America.
