San Francisco, CA.
The nice thing about having a blog is that you get to indulge whims. Apart from antique cookbooks, I have been known to dabble in wine.
Found these images from the L’Italia newspaper, published in San Francisco circa 1913. The newspaper is in Italian, so brush off those conjugations!
Judging by the primary fermentation barrels, this was quite the operation!
If you’ve made it all the way to the end of this post, oh faithful reader, there’s more! Wikipedia actually has quite an interesting background history on Petri wines. This family was a serious player in the industry and survived Prohibition. Check it out here.
