Parras de la Fuente (Spanish ; is a city located in the southern part of the Mexican state of Coahuila. The city serves as the municipal seat of the surrounding Parras Municipality, which has an area of 9,271.7 km2 (3,579.8 sq mi).
At the census of 2010, the population was 45,423. There are a large number of factories that produce denim, including a Dickies factory, and Parras is also a wine-making place. This region is the oldest wine-making in the Americas.
The former Hacienda del Rosario is the place where Parras de la Fuente was founded in 1598, by Capitán Antón Martín de Zapata. There, the revolutionary and President of Mexico Francisco I. Madero was born in 1873.
The local legend claims that the oldest winery in the Americas is in Parras de la Fuente, and was founded by Lorenzo García in the 16th century. The origin of this myth is none other than Jose Vasconcelos and his biography of Evaristo Madero, but recent research has debunked this assertion. Even earlier research has proven that during most of the 16th century many wineries were founded in central New Spain, Peru, Chile, and modern-day Argentina.
