Thomas Lake Harris, 1823-1906, founded a Utopian community in 1861 in Wassaic, NY, later moving to Brocton, NY, where he started growing grapes. Eventually, he and his followers went to Santa Rosa, Calif., where he bought 2000 acres and named the estate "Fountain Grove," an area that was more suitable for making wine. From the article: "So Harris and his disciples, filled with desire to know God and do His bidding, determined to make wine in order that what was in their hearts might be put into something that was destined to enter the very blood streams of human beings."
