Vanoni Ranch: 115 Years
Mark Vanoni emigrated from Switzerland with his wife Angelina in the mid 1800’s. They settled on the Central Coast and had a dairy below the Hearst Castle. However, a severe drought in 1898 caused the family to lose their dairy. They purchased their Geyserville ranch in the first couple years of the 1900’s.
