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.

By the late 1920s, repeal efforts were the most popular brand of city politics and one of the few venues where business cooperated with la- bor.122 To rally public support around the repeal of Prohibition, state
