years after the repeal of Prohibition. An important part of the modern story comes from the fact that, unlike all the other world-class varieties that have become a part of California’s pre- mium wine production, Zinfandel has no model of European perfection for comparison. When we sit down at a blind tasting to evaluate and compare a few red Bordeaux and California Cabernets, we can have a good time think- ing and talking about what we perceive. Which do we like better? Which will be better in years to come? Have the California producers used the grand cru wine of

From the 1960s on, however, wine growing in America has expanded remark- ably and has generated an interest among the American people such as it never had before. By all measures, American wine is flourishing: there are now more acres of vines planted, more wineries in more states, and more wine produced than the most optimistic booster could have imagined possible in the generation following the repeal of Prohibition.2 In this book I have attempted a version of this story

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

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
