Scarce promotional booklet from Ellena Brothers, established in 1906 by a descendant of an Italian winemaking family who chose the southern California location of Etiwanda (now a part of Rancho Cucamonga!) for his own vineyard after arriving in the U.S. by way of Australia. Claudio Ellena's sons Frank, John, Louis, and Arnold were all involved in the business, which sold many of its wines under the brand "Regina, Queen of Wines" and later took Regina as its primary name. The winery is now is leased by the J. Fillipi winery in Rancho Cucamonga.
Present here are a brief introduction to the vineyard and guidelines for choosing and serving wine, along with recipes for wine- and champagne-based cocktails plus savory dishes incorporating wine; the text is illustrated with depictions of the company's bottles and a sparkling wine dispenser. The back wrapper is stamped "This booklet is printed only for intra-state distribution within California."
Publisher's printed paper wrappers (back wrapper reproducing Regina champagne labels); front wrapper with crease and small spot of wear to outer edge. Pages slightly age-toned. Overall clean with virtually no wear to interior. => Nice copy of an unusual item. (40878) Please RESHELVE This.
