Cloverdale California in the Alexander Valley Wine Country

Cloverdale is where the vineyards meet the redwoods, an area rich in agriculture, fishing, hunting and natural beauty along the Russian River. The earliest inhabitants of this area were the Pomo Indians, one of the largest American tribes in on the west coast, with the entire Pomo population living in the territory that today includes Mendocino, Lake and Sonoma Counties. Considered to be the world’s best basket weavers, they also utilized an elaborate numbering and arithmetic system for their currency, which was comprised of flat button-like disks made from shells, which were traded on strings, as well as beads made of fired and colored magnesite.

In the 18th century the Russians invaded the territory for conducting their fur trading which was pretty lucrative until about 1848 when gold was discovered in California and their priorities changed.
