Not yet rated | write a review

The beginning of history for California wine starts with 17th century Jesuits and the Mission Grape. But the industry, the commercial powerhouse that commands 60% of the US market , was birthed 200 years later, the product of a Hungarian aristocrat, European grapes and the Sonoma Valley. In this groundbreaking new book by historian and bestselling author Charles L. Sullivan the untold history of Sonoma wine serves as backdrop to the turbulent story of California s first commercial winery, Buena Vista, from its founding by brilliant but quixotic Agoston Haraszthy, through phyloxera plague and the dry years of prohibition to its present-day market prominence. Sonoma Wine and the Buena Vista Story is a scholarly study of two centuries of California wine history, told in a riveting narrative that will engage and delight.
