Vintage Tipo Italian Wine Salt And Pepper Set
The Italian Swiss Colony label thrived in the early 1900s and was the most visited winery in California in its day
Founded by Andrea Sbarboro, this fellow invited Italian and Swiss to emigrate to Sonoma and they would make their living farming vineyards
Sbarboro took on a partner, Pietro Rossi, who was more skilled in winemaking
One of the most famous wines was Italian-Swiss Colony's "Tipo Chianti." It was said to be one of the best pre-Prohibition wines in California
The bottles were dressed in raffia to resemble the straw covered fiaschi bottles so common in Italy's Tuscany
Vintage glass bottle salt and pepper set that still contains the original wine
Italian Swiss Colony Tipo Wine set with aluminum tops, plastic bases and wrapped in rope twine – the twine is loose in some spots and there are a couple of spots where the twine is broken, red aluminum cap shows some light vintage fading on edges
Any wine still contained in the bottles is for display/collection only, does not add any value to the set, not for consumption and not for sale to anyone under the age of 21
Bottles contain original labels, one that says red wine, one that says white wine
Salt and pepper measure 4 1/2 inches high
