I remember passing through Sonoma county and noting a lot of Italian names on advertisements and such. Would you say due to the wineries and climate they are the cultural center of Italian Americans in California?

I'm in the wine country of Mendocino and there are quite a few Italian families that have been here for many generations. I suppose it is much the same for Napa and Sonoma.

Yes. We've only been here 9 months or so, but I'm always fascinated by the surprising number of Italian families here. But it really does makes sense since the terrain and weather in Napa and Sonoma are freakishly similar to a huge portion of Italy.

It's kind of funny, we have more Italian last names in our kid's class here than we did in NYC.
