I have just arrived at Buena Vista Winery in Sonoma, California. The plan is to sample some of the estate wines in the wood-paneled Press House Tasting Room and then wander around the historic estate, California’s oldest commercial winery and the birthplace of the state’s contemporary wine industry. I am greeted by a man dressed in a 19th-century frock coat and top hat; he appears to have adopted the mannerisms of a European aristocrat. “Welcome. I am Count Agoston Haraszthy,” he declares.

We often name special wines after members of my family. The Eleanora chardonnay is named after my wife.” The real Count Agoston Haraszthy, the first Hungarian to immigrate to the U.S., is widely recognized as the father of Californian viticulture. He built the first stone winery here in 1857, which would make the man standing in front of me almost 200 years old. In fact, he finally reveals himself to be a local character actor by the name of George Webber. Once that is established, we get on with the tour and tasting, without further theatrical flourishes.
