I do love wine but I’m no expert. However, many of my friends like to consider themselves sommeliers. Now, I thought that a sommelier was a person from Somalia so that gives you a sense of where I’m coming from. If I can drink more than a glass, I myself, rate it a very good wine.
Well for you wine connoisseurs, cruises can provide the best selection, in complexity, color, smell, and taste. There is wine for every palate sophisticated or not. Many cruise lines offer wine tasting, wine tours, and wine classes. It’s a place to discover new wines and cruises offer a variety of international wines for your tastes and preferences. What I particularly enjoyed is at dinner they serve white or red wine with your meal. Most people don’t know this but you can request both and I did, “two glasses please!”

In 1928, Don Angelo Cetto initiated the most important wine tradition in the country. With great faith, and confidence in the soil of Baja California, he gave himself the task of starting his own wine revolution in the region.
In 1963 Cetto’s Wine, under the leadership of Don Luis Augustin Cetto spearheaded a rapid modernization and vast transformation of oenology. Being the wine pioneer in the Valle de Guadalupe, Cetto concentrated on the introduction of a variety of fine grapes and in exploring the diverse terrains and climates of the region. He crowned his wine-making process by founding L.A Cetto Winery in 1975. His great purpose to give Mexico the best Baja California has to offer.
Currently, Luis Alberto is the third generation of this wine crafting tradition. He is completely dedicated to the tradition that his grandfather started. He shares the vision of Don Luis and in a short time has expanded to 27 international markets such as, France, Spain, Germany, United States, Canada to name a few. LA Cetto’s wines have received more than 150 awards from some of the most prestigious wine competitions in the world.
