The history of winemaking by Italian Americans in California goes back to the late 1800’s, beginning in earnest by the late 1880's. That was when a wave of immigrants from Tuscany and the Piedmont began arriving in Northern California. Some had a winemaking background and some did not. And while some cultivated those grape they were familiar with in their homeland, most opted to follow the conventions of the day in the selection of which grape varieties to propagate.
