Early California Wine Trade
Southern California

Southern CaliforniaSouthern California lays claim to having some of the earliest and largest
of the commercial wine producers in the mid-19th century. Many important producers began in the south, and later expanded operations in the north of
the state when Pierce's disease decimated the southern vineyards.

Charles Kohler, John Frohling, Benjamin Wilson, J. De Barth Shorb, the Sainsevain brothers, Mathew Keller, E. J. 'Lucky' Baldwin, Benjamin Dreyfus, Secundo Guasti and Justinian Caire were just some of the top wine producers from the south.
