sell wine freely from his vineyard in Napa Valley after the repeal of Prohibition in 1933. Fourteen years of restriction had reduced the wine industry to tatters. If there had once been a classic California wine of determined style and quality for Georges de Latour to protect and promote, the Volstead Act would have swept it away. On the other hand, consumers denied access to wine by Prohibition (which began in many beaulieu vineyard’s georges de latour private reserve 148 / Beaulieu Vineyard’s Georges de Latour Private Reserve states earlier than 1919) and

In chapter 10, I discuss how nudity became the byword in certain kinds of menu graphics following the repeal of Prohibition, and this little handout also doc- uments the larger shift in sexual

what seemed impossible only five years prior. Fortuitous aspects of political opportunity certainly played an important role in the repeal of Prohibition, such as the Great Depression and the subsequent increased need for revenue by state and federal governments, along with the crea- tion of (legitimate) jobs for those in industries connected to alcohol production, distribution, and consumption. At the same time, opportunities do not translate into success without motivated, capable individuals who can effectively take advantage. The WONPR’s political strategy

, they amounted to only about 2 percent of Califor- nia’s wine grape acreage in 1919. (And this percentage changed very little af- ter the repeal of Prohibition. A large market for fine California wine did not exist until the 1960s.) The prejudice against Zinfandel was short-lived, as far as shipping was concerned. It didn’t take long for a sizeable number of eastern connoisseurs— though by no means a majority—to discover that Zinfandel packed a highly recognizable varietal flavor. And, unlike Carignane and Mourvèdre, it didn’t prohibition and the fresh grape deal

“wholesome, ordinary red wine when grown in the coastal valleys of Northern California.” 7 Here was the first face of Zinfandel after the repeal of Prohibition. During the next seven years Schoonmaker made several trips to California and drank lots of California wine. In San Francisco he contacted the leaders of Medical Friends of Wine and of the Wine and Food Society. Who was mak- ing really good wine in the Golden State? When he got his answers, he went out into the countryside and talked and drank. He was particularly interested in making some solid connections with the

the term “queer” may simply refer to the strangeness of the establishment. However, the fact that Chung chose the speakeasy for a private luncheon with Gidlow suggests that she felt more comfortable developing their relationship in that space. In fact, the illegal speakeasies in North Beach and the legitimate bars that opened following the repeal of Prohibition fostered the development of San Francisco’s “queer subcultures.”33 Individuals who identified as homo- sexuals or who were interested in exploring non-normative possibilities frequented these establishments

examining the fi nancial history of mass incarceration. Beginning with the era of Prohibition and its repeal following the Great Depression, the book examines an era of penal parsimony and public nonpunitivism seldom covered by current mass incarcera- tion scholars. Th e repeal of Prohibition is framed here in the context of public despair of the futile expenditures in the losing federal battle against organized crime. Th is trend proceeded through the New Deal years of economic recovery, leading to small federal expenditures in crime control justifi ed by war

It opened on Union Street in 1934, just after the repeal of Prohibition, but moved in 1936 to Columbus Avenue. Originally intending it as a hangout for writers and artists, Mona Sargent and her then-husband, Jimmie Sargent, covered the floors at 140 Columbus with sawdust to give the place a bohe- mian atmosphere.1 Nightclub-style entertainment soon grew out of im- promptu performances, and Sargent

I am convinced that as far as the women of the country are concerned, prohibition has come to stay.”79 Willebrandt’s universal declarations for women under Prohibition, as well as her predictions, were wrong, as the Prohibition law had not “come to stay.” Women’s political organizing was as responsible for the repeal of Prohibition as it had been for its introduction.
