From: Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico
Blend: Chardonnay and Colombard
Taste: Floral bouquet with lots of lovely fruit, including notes of hibiscus. The bubbles are fine and persistent. Dry and elegant on the palate. Fresh aromas and flavors of zesty citrus meet golden apple over buttery toast and fresh white peach. These charming flavors are present on the palate but not overbearing and lead to a lifted citrusy finish.
Pairing: This would be perfect for seafood; think anything from ceviche to shrimp scampi. We’d love it with any paella or something as simple as a fruit and cheese platter. Other ideas include serving this alongside fish tacos, fried fish or prawns, fried chicken (especially Karaage chicken; see the recipe below)

About. From the winery: The prestige attained did not arrive on its own, but it could be savored after years of experience and continuous hard work.
This work goes back many years ago, when in 1928 a visionary man, Mr. Angelo Cetto, with great conviction and strength, sowed the noble European wine tradition in fertile lands of Baja California. Mr. Angelo used his skills and knowledge acquired in his native Trentino, Italy.
In 1951, a second generation followed the footsteps of the founder of our company. Mr. Luis Agustín Cetto, who was faithful to the tradition developed by his father, consolidated the brand company in the privileged Valle de Guadalupe, a place that gladly welcomed the engineer Camilo Magoni, from Morbegno, Italy, in 1965. This talented winemaker quickly reached maturity and success in winemaking.
The quality characterized by many years rendered its greatest fruits in 1983 when they launched their first L.A. Cetto varietal line, that were soon sought after by the most demanding palates. After years of dedication and dreams fulfilled, in 1983, the third generation of the family joined this task: Luis Alberto Cetto, who entrusts the purpose of reinforcing the growth of the company and strengthen the history of the group, also contributing to the opening of international markets for Mexican wines, while continuing to expand the circle of consumers in our country.
Valle de Guadalupe is unique, magical and mysterious. It contrasts the ancestral with modern, the traditional with innovative; the green from the vineyards and ocher; the roast of the hills and mountains. L.A. Cetto had the privilege of knowing this valley, (as well as the San Vicente and Llano Colorado), when viticulture was still the traditional seasonal viticulture and vines, as its name says, pruned as vines. The winegrowers were communal landholders or spoke Russian; we were fortunate to be part of that total renovation, which started in the early 70s and still continues, with the introduction of new varieties, new viticulture techniques and new irrigation systems. L.A. Cetto collaborated to open part of the East of the valley to the vine, and was also a participant and fundamental piece in the construction and development of the wine houses that provided image, prestige, boom and projection to Baja California.
L.A. Cetto wines are produced using 100% natural and sustainable methods and green practices. The grapes are harvested a little earlier than normal to help ensure freshness. This sparkling wine is produced using the Traditional Method.
