"America's Wine: The Legacy of Prohibition" - Film Screening & Reception (Free)
Covering a span of one hundred years of winemaking up to the present day, the documentary tells the story of how the leading California wine families overcame obstacles to rebuild the American wine industry, which had been decimated after National Prohibition.
Featured by The Smithsonian's National Museum of American History to celebrate the 80th Anniversary of Repeal, the film features never-before-seen archival photographs and film clips, and interviews with those who experienced Prohibition, historians, members of Congress, public policy experts, and winemakers, including Brother Timothy, Robert Mondavi and Ernest Gallo in their last on-camera appearances.
Carla De Luca Worfolk, an Emmy award-winning television and documentary producer, was commissioned by the Bancroft Library to produce "America's Wine: The Legacy of Prohibition." Carla will introduce the Petaluma screening and be available for discussion and questions.
This screening will be followed by a wine & cheese reception at the Petaluma Historical Library & Museum, 20 4th St. (Corner of 4th and B Street).
A grateful thanks to our sponsor, The Bancroft Library.
