With ten gold coins earned working as a cook in the California gold mines, my great-grandfather purchased the San Lorenzo Planting in 1896.
In 1896 Utah became the 45th state, Idaho allowed women to vote, and Pete Seghesio’s great great grandfather Francesco Passalacqua bought a vineyard in what is now Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley for 10 gold coins. This purchase was the beginning of a viticultural legacy. Pete and Cathy Seghesio now own and operate Journeyman and San Lorenzo, two tiny brands born from that original home ranch bought 123 years ago.
