The definitive account of winemaking in the United States, first as it was carried out under Prohibition, and then as it was developed and spread to all fifty states after the repeal of Prohibition. Engagingly written, exhaustively researched, and rich in detail, this book describes how Prohibition devastated the wine industry, the conditions of renewal after Repeal, the various New Deal measures that affected wine, and the early markets and methods. Includes an Index. "I am confident the term definitive will apply to this work for innumerable vintages to come. Wine lovers from New England to California now have one place to turn for the history of their favorite beverage, wherever in America its grades are grown." - Charles L. Sullivan, author of A Companion to California Wine and Zinfandel
