Taking up the subject, we may remark, j that a great benefit would be conferred j on the community were wines of colonial 1 manufacture placed within the reach of the public. The capability of the I Western District is well known, and the quality of the wine produced has made it a favorite beverage with all who have been fortunate enough to I obtain a sample of it.
