Long Description:
Samuele Sebastiani Vineyard and Winery

Here in 1825 the Franciscan Fathers of San Francisco Solano de Sonoma Mission planted the first vineyard in Sonoma Valley. The grapes were used for making sacramental wines. After secularization of the mission in 1835, General Mariano G. Vallejo, Commandant of Alta California's northern frontier, produced prize-winning wines from these grapes. Samuele Sebastiani and his wife Elvira purchased this property in the early 1900's. A young immigrant from Italy, he had come here to make his fortune. Since that time, he and his family have successfully continued with distinction the traditions handed down to them through the years. Much of the original mission vineyard is still planted to choice wine grapes.
