1. The Entire Story - Buena Vista Winery. Excerpt:
[Agoston Haraszthy] constructed the first gravity-flow winery in California and in the surrounding hills, he excavated Sonoma's first caves for aging and storing wine with the aide of Chinese laborers, whose virtues he extolled. He is also credited with being the first to experiment with Redwood barrels for aging and fermenting, an adaptation of traditional European oak barrels that employed the resources of the local forests.(Submitted on February 9, 2015, by Barry Swackhamer of Brentwood, California.)
