California wine men. Hence, it is not surprising, that as a young man, Arpad was sent to France to study wine, specifically sparking wines, returning to California, eventually becoming a respected producer of sparkling wines. In this series of 4 articles, Haraszthy assesses, and comments on, the state of viticulture & wine-making in California. "They are candid, hopeful, aspiring to perfection for wine-making in California. ... A number of the practices Arpad Haraszthy described have changed with time, and a century more of experience has made us less sanguine about the patterns of both weather and the economy of the industry. Yet there are few theroies given in these articles written in 1871 that wine men of the last quarter of the twentieth century would completely reject. Some they would debate, but the majority of Arpad Haraszthy's ideas remain valid." [Ruth Teiser, Catherine Harroun. Intro to the 1978 BCC reissue]. A rare gathering of Harszthy's significant work, documenting the history of the California wine industry.
