If you find wine tasting at A. Nonini, you'll probably hear about the winery history, the owner James Jordan's great-grandfather, and the theory of the former A. Nonini wine makers.
James Jordan is a fourth generation farmer in the Central Valley. His great-grandfather, Antonio, came over in 1900 as an orphan and ran cattle. In 1913 he purchased the property that A. Nonini sits on today. In 1936, their family started producing wine (bringing wine making to 80 years of production!!)
While the history is rich at this winery, there are probably a three random facts you didn't know...
1. James was 12 when he made his first bottle of wine (he even still has it)
2. A. Nonini winery still uses some of the original equipment from when the winery opened - including a 527 gallon redwood barrel.
3. James believes his great-grandfather and grandfather's spirits reside in the winery. Paranormal investigators have even checked it out: https://youtu.be/vc3NJ4sErLY
