Vinos L.A. Cetto

L.A. Cetto winery in Baja California's Valle de Guadalupe, now experience the fruits of founder Don Angelo Cetto's hard work, sacrifice and dreams. Cetto left his native Italy in 1926 and made the long journey to Baja with the goal of bringing Mediterranean wine production to Mexico's perfect wine growing climate - warm weather, cool nights, consistent marine layer and sandy soil. One could call his impulse the lure of the terrain. Three generations later, Cetto's descendants proudly operate one of the oldest and most highly respected wineries in all of Mexico. L.A. Cetto (now helmed by Luis Alberto Cetto) produces approximately 1,000,000 cases of wine each year in three facilities and has become the largest wine producer in the country, not to mention one of the largest wineries in all of Latin America.

Tasting Notes

Surprisingly pale in colour with a tropical fruit nose. Citrus fruits initially and then fuller tropical fruit on the palate with a whiff of honey. This wine is off dry like many other Chenins but has a lovely crisp acidity too.

Food Matches

Refreshing and perfect as an aperitif or with lighter dishes.
