Latino Entrepreneur Launches ‘Tributo a Mi Padre,’ a Premium Tequila Crafted to Honor His Father’s Memory
Fulfilling a life-long dream and keeping a son’s promise, Latino entrepreneur and former head of the U.S. Small Business Administration, Hector V. Barreto, officially launches Tributo a Mi Padre (Tribute to My Father), a premium tequila spirit, at the 6th Annual East L.A. Meets Napa Premiere Food and Wine Tasting Event, on Friday, July 8, in Union Station, Downtown Los Angeles.
Born under the Mexican sun in the region of Tequila, whose ancient Nahuatl name also means “a place of tribute,” Tributo is grown in the generational farmlands of the Barreto family and extracted only from the rich, blue agave plants which populate this fertile valley. Available in its three traditional presentations, Blanco, Reposado and Anejo, Tequila Tributo’s craftsmanship reflects a deep respect for the land in which it is produced and for the authentic tequila-making traditions that date back to the late 18th century.
