Cesaré is a hale ninety-nine years old, the twice-elected mayor of Ukiah and elder statesman of the Brutocao vineyard. More popular with rich and poor alike than his cold, jet-setting son, Cesaré inherited the family business when his elder brother Vincenzo died in a motorcycle accident, and led the vineyard to critical and financial greatness through the middle and end of the last century.
Cesaré Brutocao remains active in local politics and charity. His clothes and bearing are just old-fashioned enough to seem quaint, and his eyes sparkle with mirth. He can be seen proudly driving around town in his vintage Rolls Royce sedan, attending golf tournaments, and relentlessly spoiling his beloved grandchildren.
