There should not be any doubt as to the origin of this wine.
U.S. producers were at the Hotel Real Intercontinental in Escazú Thursday night promoting their wines, meats, cheeses and other foods.
The wine was from California, and producers are the beneficiaries of the Central American Free Trade Treaty. Wine in bottles was one of the first products to be exempted from import duties by the pact.
There did not seem to be any effect on the retail price, however.
