Vallejo "Val" Haraszth
Val's story is pretty unique in the wine business and began six generations ago in Sonoma, CA. Val's two great-great grandfathers are well-known California pioneers and historic Sonoma legends. Mexican General Mariano Vallejo founded Sonoma in 1835 and made wine in the army barracks still located on Sonoma's town square. He was forced at gunpoint to relinquish California to the Bear Flaggers — a self proclaimed and rather nasty group who declared California a republic for themselves on June 14, 1846, the precursor to California of cial statehood 25 days later.


Vallejo (Val) Haraszthy established Haraszthy Family Cellars in 2006. Three distinct
separate wines are produced from grapes grown in Sonoma Valley, Lodi, and Amador
County – the three most preeminent California Zinfandel appellations.

Val’s great-great grandfathers were Mariano Vallejo, who founded Sonoma in 1835, and
Agoston Haraszthy, who is often referred to as “the father of California viticulture.”

Mariano Vallejo was the last of the Mexican governors of Alta (northern) California and
a winemaker in his own right. On June 14, 1846, Vallejo was unceremoniously captured
and arrested at his home by a group of Sonoma settlers intent on seizing the territory for
themselves. Lucky to escape with his life, the group took him prisoner, lowered the
Mexican flag and fashioned their own flag depicting a grizzly bear and a star
commemorating Texas. The uprising subsequently became known as “the bear flag
incident.” The bear on the wine label commemorates this historic California event.

Agoston Haraszthy was a Hungarian immigrant who came to America in the early
1840’s. Apart from his pioneer efforts to establish a world-class wine industry in
California, he holds other important distinctions: he was the first Hungarian to
permanently settle in the United States, founder of one of the earliest towns in Wisconsin,
owner and operator of the first steam boat to engage in regularly scheduled traffic on the
upper Mississippi and founder of California’s first commercial winery. Agoston is
responsible for bringing the first European grapes (vitis vinifera) to California in 1861
and distributing them to local farmers in the Sonoma and Napa Valleys.

The Haraszthy family has lived in Sonoma Valley continuously for six generations. Val
is the winemaker and owner of Haraszthy Family Cellars, which produces approximately eight thousand cases of wine annually.
