Weekly Wine Quiz #16: Father of California Wine
Arguably or not, but today California is the most important and best known wine making region in the United States. Starting from the 17th century, many people were obsessed with making wines in California and greatly helped to make it what it is today.
From those many people, however, there was one who is considered to be the Father of California wine industry. As we will celebrate Father’s Day tomorrow, I think it will be very appropriate to acknowledge that person who we have to thank for starting something which became a source of some of the best wines in the world. I would even say that we all have to raise a glass in his honor – but do you know who you have to honor as The Father of California Wine Industry?
As a bonus question, try to name the grape which he was planting. Enjoy your weekend! Cheers!
