Blast from the past (1948)

Picked this up from a friend during the holidays...

Interesting thing within the program from the 1948 Sonoma Valley Vintage festival - only 4 wineries are buying ad space at that time! Sebastiani, Mancuso (which is long since defunct), Glen Ellen and Buena Vista.
Also of note is a small blurb regarding Count Agoston Harazathy and the increase in California's wine production from 1850 (total production for the entire State was - get this - 58,055 gallons, or ~24,200 cases!) until 1946-47 (when it had increased to a whopping 177,000,000 gallons - or roughly 73.75 million cases equivalent...).
