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

-arm methods during the bootlegging era, they were left high and dry by the repeal of Prohibition—if the metaphor is permitted— and they moved onto the docks. How did such individuals become a part of the industry? Some were brought in by stevedoring companies as hiring foremen. One company official explained his rationale for this policy: Yes, our labor policy is tough. It has to be . . . because it is a rough, tough business. Now about criminals working on the docks: this may sound terrible to you, but I don't care whether they are criminals or not, just so long as

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

These factors included the widespread introduction of the juke- box, which provided a new public forum for recorded music and helped to revive a moribund recording industry (by 1938 jukeboxes accounted for over half of all record sales), and the repeal of Prohibition at the end of 1933, which rid jazz of unsavory underworld associations and gave restaurants, nightclubs, and ballrooms a steady source of revenue with which to begin hiring live music.3 Goodman's hysterical reception at New York's Paramount Theater in March 1937 highlighted another crucial trend

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

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

Following the repeal of Prohibition in the United States, the name was much used for any white wine that its maker might choose to put in the bottle so labeled; the practice has now disappeared. The omission of the s at the end of “Sauternes” was standard on U.S. labels but is remarkable on a European bottling. 97 Freytag’s best novel: Gustav Freytag, Soll und Haben (1855): “ ‘At least not your terrible white Burgundy,’ cried Guido Tronko. ‘My veins are still swollen like cords from
