The history of wine making in this region goes back to the Spanish Jesuits who founded Mission de Santo Tomas in the late 1700s. They brought and planted Mission grape vines and produced the first wines in the California’s. After Mexico stripped the Catholic church of its land holdings in the 1800s, the land was eventually sold. The new owners established the Bodegas de Santo Tomas, still in operation today.
