Implying ‘modest’ in Spanish, the American city of Modesto is the county seat and largest city of Stanislaus County in California. Typical of its county that ranks among the state’s top ten for its extensive farm produce, Modesto is a city that assumes different colors and flavors with regards to its agricultural production (especially during the harvest season from May to November). It is scenically surrounded by rich farmlands and had provided powdered milk and eggs to the US Army during the Second World War. It is home to the world’s largest privately owned winery (Gallo Family Winery) and the world’s largest wine bottle manufacturing company (Gallo Glass Company). Modesto is not at all modest when it comes to adventure sports (like river rafting, hiking or jet skiing) or an avid music scene. The latter can be easily evinced from X-Fest, a famous music festival featuring the world's largest disco and several bands.
