Just a bit of wine-related trivia for you on this Wine Wednesday!

Buena Vista Carneros Winery

The plaque reads:

Birthplace of California wine founded in 1857 by Colonel Agoston Haraszthy, father of the state’s wine industry. Lime stone tunnels were dug into the hillside and vineyards were also established. Haraszthy toured Europe in 1861 to gather the cuttings that developed California’s wine industry.

California Registered Historical Landmark No. 392
