MT KISCO, NY — L.A. Cetto wines of Mexico have been selected to be poured at the May 21st 2010 James Beard Foundation dinner. The menu has been created by culinary great -Ivy Stark, Executive Chef of Dos Caminos NYC and promises to tantalize the evening’s lucky guests. Each of the courses are harmoniously paired with Mexico's opulent wines from L.A.Cetto. A privileged peak at the menu (see below) makes you want to find a way to attend this event. Kudos to L.A. Cetto for producing wine of the highest standard.

The L.A. Cetto Winery has proven to be a creative force in the industry by producing award-winning quality wines at affordable prices. Camillo Margoni, L.A. Cetto’s chief enologist, has been nurturing the vines, overseeing the grapes development and has been creating masterful wines for 40 years. The ideal weather conditions for growing the grapes come from its proximity to the Pacific Ocean and the mountains ranges of the Valle de Guadalupe. Since 1996, L.A Cetto has received more than 225 International Awards. The 2004 Nebbiolo Private Reserve has a shelf price of $17.00 - $19.99 (MSRP) and is the premiere wine in a very impressive line up. Tasters Guild 2009 also bestowed L.A Cetto with Gold for their 2007 Barbera Reserve, Silver for their 2007 Petite Sirah and Bronze for their 2007 Zinfandel. Additionally, the 2009 San Francisco International Wine Competition gave L.A Cetto Bronze Medals to their 2007 Chardonnay, Private Reserve and 2007 Petite Sirah, Private Reserve. L.A. Cetto received 7 Awards, but the pride of the line up is the 2004 Double Gold Winning Nebbiolo Reserve. Look for the full line of L.A Cetto wines in stores nationally.
