The first known California vineyard was planted in 1779 at Mission San Juan Capistrano near the coast, midway between Los Angeles and San Diego. The first wine was produced in 1782, which was a sweet, fortified beverage. Following this initial effort, small vineyards were planted with increasing regularity at missions and on larger ranches. Father Junipero Serra, whose vision guided the formation of the mission system, moved back and forth along the coast and inland, reaching as far north as Sonoma. As he established missions, vineyards soon followed.
