Erected in 1862This is the first stone winery building in California, and also the first "gravity-flow" wine building. The Count's wine grapes were loaded directly to the back of the building's second floor from the road , made into wine, then brought by gravity to the caves below to be aged at steady, cool temperatures. The use of pumps can bruise wine - thus reducing flavor.
