The Historic La Questa Vineyard | EST. 1883

E. H. Rixford displayed the growing confidence in California as a new wine growing region as illustrated on the frontispiece to the title page of his book published in 1883, “The Wine Press and the Cellar” (San Francisco). Lady Liberty is popping a cork of wine while the state’s mascot, California grizzly bear holds a wine glass filled while leaning against a barrel with its head bearing the state seal.

In 1902, Rixford hired a Swiss Stone Mason to build a winery using stones uncovered while planting the vineyard. The stone walls of the fermenting room and the vault exist today as a private residence.
