Chinese immigrants played a crucial role in shaping California's wine industry. Between the years of 1870 and 1900, Chinese immigrants were the primary workforce in the vineyards and wine country of Napa Valley. They cleared land, cultivated vineyards, dug wine cellars, and built bridges and roads. Despite discrimination, they contributed labor and expertise to vineyard work and their contributions were indispensable to the success of California's wineries.
