REPORT OF ALLEN B. LEMMON. 

SANTA ROSA, CAL., June 20, 1893. 

Hon. I. DETURK, Viticultural Commissioner for the Sonoma District: 

DEAR SIR: Herewith I submit my report of the canvass of Sonoma 
County in the collection of vineyard and wine statistics, as per blank 
forms furnished by you for such purpose. 

In doing this work, I first sent a circular letter to all vineyardists, 
with a blank form and addressed stamped envelope for the reply, ask- 
ing for the desired information. This was preliminary to the general 
visitation of the county, and thus I secured a showing from about two 
hundred vineyardists. This was followed by visitation to every neigh- 
borhood and to almost every vineyard. 

^ IThe statistics have been collected and classified by supervisor districts, 
of which there are five. After careful study of the county, this seemed 
to me to be the most satisfactory division of the territory. The first 
district includes the Sonoma Valley, in which phylloxera has done the 
greatest damage, with some contiguous country. The vineyards about 
Sebastopol, in Analy Township, and the few vineyards about Petaluma 
constitute the second district. The third district is composed of Santa 
Rosa and Russian River Townships; the fourth of the Healdsburg 
country and the territory north and east of there, and the fifth the 
coast region of the county. 



Much attention has been given to the vineyards infested by phylloxera. 
In some instances the patience of the owners has been wearied by the 
questions asked. It was ascertained that in some instances high fertiliza- 
tion and very thorough cultivation were tried, but the ravages of the 
disease continued just the same. One or two flooded their vineyards 
with water, where it could be done, but this did not tend to check the 
deadly work of the disease. Bisulphide of carbon was tried, but it 
proved too expensive, and is not known to have done much good. Such 
efforts to save vineyards were exceptional cases. Most grape growers 
have made no effort whatever at special treatment, either digging out 
the infested vineyard and planting the ground to something else, or 
replanting with resistants as the old vines have died. 

From the best information obtainable, I conclude that the first ap- 
pearance of phylloxera in this county was in the Dresel-Gundlach 
vineyard, a few miles south of Sonoma, in 1874 or 1875. There, much 
money was expended on suggested remedies and in experimenting with 
resistants. In time all the old vines were destroyed and resistants 
took their place, and the vineyard is now in a very flourishing con- 
dition. 

From this old and noted vineyard the phylloxera has extended north 
some twenty miles. At Glen Ellen it crossed over into Bennett Valley 
some five or six years ago, through which it has entered northward 
several miles. Three years ago the disease made its appearance in the 
Upper Russian' River Valley, in the vineyards of L. G. Ellis and C. P. 
Moore. These vineyards are about three miles apart, and the river 
flows between them. Mr. Ellis can offer no explanation for the appear- 
ance of the insects in his vineyard, unless it was brought there with 
some cuttings received from a district in which phylloxera has since 
shown itself. Mr. Moore shipped some of his grapes to a winery in an 
infested district a few years ago, and he thinks the troublesome insect 
may have been carried to his home in the boxes returned. There are 
one or two other vineyards in the neighborhood of that of Mr. Moore 
in which a considerable number of vines have died, but the owners 
attribute the loss to other causes. 

The work of destruction is very apparent in the extensive vineyard 
owned by J. G. Fair in Vallejo Township. One field of nearly forty 
acres is badly infested, and a single spot of a few rods square was found 
in a neighboring vineyard. 

In all other sections of the county the vines were found to be healthy, 
except an occasional touch of black knot. The people owning vine- 
yards on the deep sandy loam that predominates in Analy Township 
are quite hopeful that vines in soil of that character are safe from 
attacks of phylloxera, but those cultivating the heavier loams do not 
speak with as much confidence. Within a few days, men who pro- 
nounced their vines healthy two months ago have reported the recent 
appearance of phylloxera in their vineyards. 

In the Sonoma Valley a considerable number of resistant vineyards 
have been planted, but many old vineyards have disappeared and their 
owners have abandoned the culture of the grape. In other portions of 
the county there is much talk of turning attention to other crops. 
Grape growers are generally much discouraged some on account of the 
ravages of the phylloxera, and others at the low prices which have long 
prevailed. While a few have added somewhat to their vineyards and 



are hoping that the day is not distant when grape growing will be again 
profitable, the greater number are discouraged. 

As will be seen by examination of the detailed report submitted, 
many more Riparia have been planted than any other of the resistant 
variety. While these vines are slower growers than some others, they 
are generally regarded as the most reliable. As most of the resistant 
vineyards are young, just coming into bearing, it has not been possible 
to get much information in regard to results. At the same time, it may 
be said that there is great confidence that resistant vineyards \vill be 
permanent, and that in the near future they are likely to be profitable. 

In attempting to grow resistant vineyards, there have been some 
mistakes in grafting. It will not do to graft too low. If this is done 
the grafts are likely to throw out roots, and in time take the place of 
the resistant root. This is followed by phylloxera killing the vine, and 
thus all the work and expense have been for naught. It seems settled 
that the graft should be put in at about the surface of the ground. 
There is difference of opinion as to the kind of grafting best to apply 
to the grape, as will be seen by examination of the remarks of some of 
the vineyardists. 

While phylloxera has done great harm in portions of this county, it 
is gratifying to note the many large and important districts injwhich 
the vines are still healthy and give promise of good returns. In jour- 
neying about the county, not nearly as many infested vineyards were 
found as had been reported. With great valleys as well as large areas 
of upland entirely free from phylloxera or other disease, after its exist- 
ence in parts of the county for many years, it would seem likely that 
the prominence of this section for grape growing and wine making will 
long be maintained. 

The increased acreage of table grapes is noted. Also, that this crop 
is usually quite profitable. There are a considerable number of such 
vineyards, and more are being planted every year. 

While the report shows returns from 832 vineyards, aggregating 23,- 
291-2 acres, with a yield last year of 48,409| tons, there are many small 
vineyards of less than five acres which have not been reported". It is 
believed that there are at least one hundred of these, whose aggregate 
acreage is certainly 250. 

The winery returns are not as complete as would be desirable, but the 
best has been done. Some wine makers have declined to give any 
figures, and others have made statements that were afterward found to 
be incorrect. In some instances two letters were written without get- 
ting any returns, and afterward, on visiting the winery, nobody was 
found there who was able to give the particulars asked for. 

The collection of these statistics was not an unpleasant task. Most 
grape growers were found to be very reasonable and accommodating. 
After frankly talking the matter over with them, not more than a half 
dozen declined to answer the questions asked to the best of their ability. 
In doing this work the writer has had opportunity to meet in a friendly 
way and talk a few minutes with most of the men in this county engaged 
in this important industry. This has given me a knowledge of their 
business that could have been secured in no other way, and in submit- 
ting this report I return thanks to you for the favor you bestowed in 
permitting me to make this canvass. 

Respectfully submitted. 

ALLEN B. LEMMON.

above. 

Cooper, J. S. and J. R., Sonoma. Total, 1 acres; in bearing, 3 acres; table grapes, 4 acres;

for more than another crop; all to be replanted with resistants; now planted to re- 
sistants (Riparia), 25 acres, not yet grafted; soil red gravelly loarn; rolling upland, the 
exposure being to all points of the compass; is not certain as to the most resistant 
European varieties; has given the attacked vines very little special attention, pulling 
them out when they have become much diseased; crop, 64 tons; stock of wine on hand, 
500,000 gallons; cooperage, 640,000 gallons, of which 90,000 gallons is oak and 550,000 
gallons redwood. 

This vineyard was planted in 1884, 1885, and 1886. Mr. DeTurk has had much expe- 
rience in growing grapes and making wine. More than thirty years ago he started the 
noted Yum pa vineyard, now the property of G. W. Davis, and he gave close study and 
attention to the grape and wine business. His new vineyard ground was selected as 
being superior in all respects, and only the best and most approved varieties of wine 
grapes were planted. J ust after the young vineyard came into bearing, some four or five 
years ago, the phylloxera appeared. It first attacked the Chauche Noir varieties, and it 
now affects all varieties of vinifera. The crop was not much affected by the disease 
until last year. 

Dowdell & Son, El Verano Total, 10 acres; in bearing, 10 acres; all wine grapes; red 
soil; low lying; northern exposure; crop, 20 tons.

Tokays on their own roots there are 6 acres, partly but not whofly resistant, but will 
not do on soil in which the disease exists, as they grow slowly and sometimes bear, but 
finally succumb; soil light sandy loam; slightly rolling; westerly exposure; infested 
vines'have been taken up and Riparia and Lenoir vines have been put in; crop, 30 tons. 
Mr. Drahms has great faith in resistant stocks. He thinks it a question of out a few 
years when all other vineyards will be dead, and that then those planted to resistant 
roots will become very valuable. 

Dresel, Carl, Sonoma. Total, 45 acres; acres in bearing, 23; all in wine grapes; acres in 
resistants, 45; all resistants, except a few, Lenoir and Elvira; soil volcanic, some lime,

wine; entire vintage, 115,000 gallons; stock of wine on hand, 250,000 gallons; cooperage, 
359,000 gallons, of which 295,000 gallons is oak and 64,000 gallons is redwood. 

The two Dresel vineyards, that of Mr. Gundlach and of the Henry Winkle estate, con- 
stitute the famous purchase of 1857 by the elder Dresel and his associates, with some 
additions since secured. Phylloxera attacked these vineyards in 1874 and 1875. In 1878 
experiments with resistants were begun. The Taylor and Riparia were the first tried. 
Since then all resistants have been tried in these vmevards, and all the leading varieties 
of wine grapes have been used as grafts. Mr. Dresel has least confidence in the Taylor 
and Elvira. The vineyards on the Dresel and Gundlach places show superior care and 
cultivation, the vines being vigorous and entirely healthy. The winery is supplied with 
water from an artesian well, which was secured after almost a fortune had been spent on 
experiments.

supposed to be free from phylloxera, but the ravages of the fly are now plainly marked. 
It is intended to replant with resistant vines as rapidly as the old vines die out, and to 
add one half to the acreage of the vineyard soon by planting resistant vines. 

Faithful, Charles, El Verano. Total, 5 acres; table grapes; light gravelly soil; lowland; 
southern exposure; young vines, no crop being reported:.

oak and half redwood. 

Mr. Glaister considers the Tokay an excellent resistant vine. He grafted Zinfandels 
on Tokay roots eighteen years ago and the vines are still alive and giving good returns, 
while vines all about them have died. The large rootage of the Tokays in a\itumn makes 
them strong to resist attacks of phylloxera. He cut Malvoisie eight inches below the 
surface and grafted with Lenoir. They made a great growth and the second" year he 
put in Semillon and the next year had a full crop. His resistants have made best 
growth on stiff adobe soil.

This was the first place in the valley where phylloxera made its appearance. It has 
been observed in this vineyard for three years past, but has been confined to two or three 
small spots of about an acre all told. The remainder of the vineyard appears to be 
healthy. Mr. Ellis has no idea as to how phylloxera got a foothold in his vineyard. He 
says there has been no interchange of grape boxes with any infested orchard. His place 
is across the river from Geyserville, in a belt of very rich country, entirely surrounded 
by the Russian River and high hills or mountains. It is a thoroughly protected spot, so 
far as contact with the outside world is concerned. At first the disease appeared out in 
one spot, which has increased in size each year. The next season two other spots some 
twenty rods distant were affected, a few vines dying at each. Mr. Ellis has put in a few 
resistants, with which he is experimenting.
