A Veteran and a Vintner
As to wine, Madie Emparan wrote, "General Vallejo was a regular exhibitor at the Fairs in Petaluma, Marysville, San Francisco and Sacramento, winning first and second premiums for his white wine, red wine and champagne. The awards of silver goblets, berry spoons and pitchers of silver must have delighted Senora Vallejo."
So, on this day, we recommend a Zinfandel from the Sonoma area. Here's one based partly on vines planted only 15 years after General Vallejo's death in 1890.
Postscript: Who's the lady who wrote about the General's wines? Her husband was Raoul Emparan, 36th grandchild of General Vallejo's, who celebrated Raoul's birth in 1885.
Note: For more about Pedroncelli wines, see the Feb. 28 WineDay.
