children should go to America for the sake of opportunity).
John James Dufour himself said that he had been fascinated by the idea
of making wineinAmerica from the time he was fourteen years old and read
in the papers some reports from French soldiers serving with the American
armies in the Revolution complaining about the lack of wine “in the midst
of the greatest abundance of everything else.” 2 There were all-too-good rea-
