A Tale of Two Wineries
The Rest of the Story: So what do Bob Fredson and the Cambiaso Winery have in common? A lot...he merely caused the winery to change its name! Here's how it happend.
In 1976 Bob became Cambiaso winemaker. Because of the rising demand for varietal wines, he turned out one under a new brand name, Domaine Saint George. It sold out in a few weeks.
