"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.
