John James Dufour himself said that he had been fascinated by the idea of making wine in America 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- sons for the absence of native wine in America, as explained in the introduc- tion.

Garrett believed, quite simply and without qualification, that America could and would be a country flowing with wine — American wine. And he would be the man to show how it was to be done.

Every earlier attempt to grow grapes for wine on the Eastern Seaboard had failed. In his History of Wine in America, Thomas Pinney tells us that Midwest viticulture started with a
