Collection documents Mexican American winemakers through oral history interviews and transcripts.
Born-digital audio interviews and transcripts with Mexican American winemakers.
Collection is arranged into one series, alphabetically by interviewee name.
The history of winemaking in California cannot be told without recognizing the significant contributions of Mexican and Mexican American workers, who planted, nurtured and harvested the wine grapes. In recent decades, some have become successful wine makers and owners, applying technical expertise as well as knowledge gained through years of experience and mentorship under established winemakers. The Sonoma, Napa and Lake Country districts now include numerous Latino-owned wine estates.
