1824 - The first grapevines were planted at Mission San Francisco de Solano

The first grapevines were cultivated at Mission San Francisco de Solano in 1824, and George Yount obtained his vines from that vineyard a few years later to plant in the Napa Valley. General Mariano Vallejo eventually acquired ownership of the local mission properties, developed Sonoma, and established his own vineyard. The first vintage made from grapes cultivated on Jacob Gundlach’s Rhinefarm was served in 1861; to this day, the vineyard serves as the entrance to Gundlach Bundschu.
