Lou Foppiano, 100 on November 25!

Lou Foppiano, renowned for his role in the Sonoma wine history, will turn 100 on November 25.

According to the PressDemocrat.com, Lou Foppiano celebrated his 100th birthday on Sunday in Healdsburg. In the article, Lou Foppiano turns 100, celebrates in Healdsburg, the author, Sam Scott, writes about the contributions that Lou Foppiano made to the wine industry.

Scott writes, “Foppiano helped transform Sonoma County from its jug-wine days selling bulk into a leader in the industry. At the same time, he led Foppiano Vineyards in Healdsburg to becoming the county’s oldest winery continually operated by its founding family.”

Wine Trail Traveler visited Foppiano Vineyards and enjoyed learning about the winery and its place in Sonoma wine history. The article is available at Foppiano Vineyards.

To read about Prohibition in which Foppiano Vineyards survived through, read When the Rivers Ran Red by Vivienne Sosnowski. A review of the book is at http://winetrailtraveler.com/reviews/generalbooks.php#riverrunsred.

Cheers, Kathy
