Promotional brochure for the Regina Winery in Etiwanda, California, operated by the Ellena Brothers. Established in 1906 by Claudio Ellena, a descendant of an Italian winemaking family. Claudio's sons eventually took over the business, marketing their wine under the brand Regina, Queen of Wines. The vineyard primarily produced sparkling and dessert wines, and also operated a vinegar plant. The present work showcases wine labels, as well as a sparkling wine dispenser so you can pour bottles of champagne "on tap." The brochure gives a history of the family and vineyards, and strives to "acquaint you more fully with the many ways to really enjoy the goodness of fine wines without the burden of responsibility of minute details or formality." It also includes recipes for several champagne cocktails.
