Congrats to Malea Martin and to Kevin Ferguson for the story of the Gemello family history of their winery and relationship to acreage in Mountain View. I read it all and wrote notes to now investigate the winery and the Gemello Park location. I look forward to the book. It would sell at the Los Altos History Museum, I am sure.
