This circa 1900 photograph shows a man, vintner James Frasinetti, delivering barrels of wine. He is doing so with a wagon, pulled by two horses. A native of Italy, Frasinetti founded his self-styled winery in 1897. It covered 400 acres of land near the Florin District of Sacramento County, distributing both locally and as far away as the east coast of the United States. Frasinetti died in 1965, but his winery continued operation well into the twenty-first century.
