Description
"Italian Swiss Colony vineyard scene at Asti, Sonoma County, Cal." Man and woman, dressed in Italian peasant costumes, harvest grapes. Text on back: "Way back in 1881 a hardy group of immigrant families from the famous wine-growing regions of Northern italy and Switzweland established their famous colony at Asti. Cuttings of the choicest European vines were brought over, and planted. Asti proved the ideal location for their winery because within a short eleven years its wines, entered in international competition, had won gold medals for excellence."
