formal structure to overcome.” In wine making, as in cooking, there was a schism between training and instinct. Many of the first wave of winemakers in the late 1970s— a veritable honor role of vintners— came out of the Viticulture and Enology Department at UC Davis. This research and education program was founded in 1880 and became established on the Davis campus in 1935. Following the repeal of Prohibition in 1933, the program concentrated on ways to increase yields, improve quality, and determine the varieties and clones that would do best in the different

pinots made in the s and s were not made from Carneros-grown grapes, but instead from pinot grown in the estate vineyards known internally as BV and BV, located on the west side of Highway  in Rutherford. Th e pinot vines currently in BV and BV may have been survivors from de Latour’s initial plantings ca.  and , respectively, but are more likely to have been propagated when these vineyards, like many others in Napa, were replanted, in whole or in part, following the repeal of Prohibition in . Beaulieu’s fi rst Carneros vineyard

represented the apotheosis of the urban American nightclub. After the repeal of Prohibition, opposition to nightlife weakened across the country, and nightclubs became a more acceptable part of urban culture. Thanks to a booming wartime econ- omy and the disruption of family life caused by army recruitment, the 1940s and 1950s represented “the biggest era” yet for the nation’s niter- ies: “Uprooted from their homes with money to spend, ordinary soldiers from around the country for the first time had the chance to patronize nightclubs. Fueled by wartime expenditures

) nation.55 In the area of foreign policy this applied at least for some fundamentalists to the American entry into the world war and, above all, plans to join the League of Nations. In domestic policy political decline was evident in the corruption of urban party apparatuses, in the circumvention or planned repeal of Prohibition, and in efforts to shed the public schools of their Christian character. Considerable segments of the fundamentalist camp initially opposed the United States' entry into the war. They modified this position only after America had become a

Days | 273 Gloria and Blumey were photographed together celebrating the repeal of Prohibition at the Central Park Casino. Peggy Fears was there too, the caption in the Daily News noted, but Blumey was “squiring” Gloria. One day, in the summer of 1933, Blumey brought Gloria to Nathan Burkan’s office to get his advice with respect to a most distressing family conflict. 274 A. C.  Blumenthal  was  in  many  ways  an  archetypal  Nathan  Burkan  client—a  brash,  up-by-his-bootstraps  money  magnet.  Gloria  Morgan  Vanderbilt—a stammering, dispossessed blue blood

radio, the phonograph industry was particularly hard hit by the Depression, and record sales plummeted. Fewer people could afford rec- ords for home use, so public listening became more widespread. This public listening was centered on the jukebox: “Recorded sound weath- ered the Depression of the 1930s with the help of coin-slot players in public places.” In fact, “by 1936 over half of all record production in the United States was destined for [jukeboxes].” Jukeboxes at the time were often found in bars and taverns: “the repeal of prohibition in 1933 brought about a

center of American popular music. Record sales slowly began to rebound and then exploded in the late 1930s, and the repeal of Prohibition in 1933 brought masses of people into dance halls. Swing as a popular movement was facilitated by a growing capital in- vestment in the culture industry and the increasing proliferation of mass communications technologies. Jazz historians generally point to the highly acclaimed, nationwide broadcast of Benny Goodman’s August 21, 1935, performance at Los Angeles’s Palomar Ballroom as the symbolic begin- ning of the “swing era.” This
