Mexico boasts the distinction of being the oldest wine-producing country in the Americas, with a history dating back to 1521, just one year after the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors. L.A. Cetto, Mexico’s largest winery, was itself established in 1975, but its origins date to Don Angelo Cetto, who arrived from Italy in 1924. Their Cabernet Sauvignon is known for its complexity of fruit flavours, balance and structure. Dry and medium bodied, it is ideal for grilled meats or beef fajitas.

Cetto left his native Italy in 1926 and made the long journey to Baja California 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.

I had a great wine in Mexico a couple of months ago and I would like to order some from a Mexican retailer. Only I can't tell if they ship to the U.S. or not. Is this usually a problem with Mexican wine retailers? And does anyone know of a good reputable Mexican wine online retailer?
