Just The Facts
POSTSCRIPT: The Wheeler family was living happily in San Francisco when in 1970 they made a fateful move. They bought a 175-acre tract in Sonoma's Dry Creek Valley. By remote control they raised and sold Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Was it any fun? So much so that ultimately they took the kids out of school, sold their home, and became hands-on Dry Creek vintners.
