In this photo taken Friday, Aug. 31, 2012 people attend a celebration of the re-birth of Buena Vista Winery's historic champagne cellars and caves at the winery in Sonoma, Calif. Many people think the California wine world came of age in 1976 after a famous tasting in Paris put the Golden State’s vintages on the world map. But for Jean Charles Boisset, new owner of the state’s oldest commercial winery, the state’s fine wine making traditions started a century before that. That’s why the Burgundian is building the future of 155-year-old Buena Vista Winery, a landmark known as the birthplace of California wine, on its past. He plans to make wines in September in the stately stone buildings and old wine caves for the first time in two decades. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg) less
