Grab your glass and take to the wine trail with food genealogist Sherry Monahan as she traces the roots of California’s VINES, WINES & PIONEERS. While cowboys and early settlers were writing the oft-told history of the Wild West, California’s wine pioneers were cultivating a delicious industry. The story begins when Franciscan missionaries planted the first grapes in Southern California in 1769. Almost a century later, news of gold drew thirsty prospectors and European immigrants to California’s promise of wealth. From Old World vines sprang a robust and varied tradition of wine cultivation that overcame threats of pests and Prohibition to win global prestige. Journey with Monahan as she uncorks this vintage history and savors the stories of California’s historic wineries and vineyards.
