Believe it or not, back in 1491, there were no fences on this property in California. Of more interest perhaps, is that King Charles VIII of France married Anna of Bretagne and honeymooned in a little chateaux called La Cabane sur la Colline that once stood on the closest hill. They had a jolly good time and laughed their butts off when they got back to France and heard some dude named Christopher Columbus had declared he found the New World in 1492. Heck, all Christopher had to do was go inland a few thousand miles and he would realized all those french wine bottles didn't get there all by themselves.
(the above is a complete fabrication except perhaps for the statement about no fences)
