The Catholic University of America used To-Kalon Wine for its altar wine in 1897


In 1897, Vice-Rector Garrigan of the Catholic University of America certified that he used the To-Kalon White Pinot Wine as the altar wine for the past eight years.  Today the famous and historic To Kalon Vineyard is owned by Robert Mondavi, Andy Beckstoffer, UC Davis, and Opus One.  It is currently planted with such varieties as Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Fume Blanc, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Syrah, and Semillon.
