An article in the North Bay Business Journal describes this event as the highlight of a year-long celebration made possible in part by a first-of-its-kind public-private partnership between the California Department of Parks and Recreation and the international Russian conglomerate, Renova.

According to the article the first grapes that were ever grown in California were grown at Fort Ross.
