LA Farm Girl's Post Re: Los Angeles Wine Country!

Some of you know that I not only write about current farming in California and especially here in LA, but that I am obsessed with farm history and am working on a new book about Los Angeles agriculture.

As part of this, I am blogging with my book partner at her UC Agriculture and Natural Resources Los Angeles Agriculture blog.

Here is Part Two of:
"How Los Angeles Became The Commercial Winegrowing Capital of America"

Yes, long before the Napa Valley or Sonoma became the winegrowing meccas that they are, LA was it, a position it held until the late 1800's.

I am working on Part 3 so watch for it soon!
