Ann Arbor, MI - University of Michigan - Clements Library
Duration: 01:13:55

Curated by Professor Daniel T. Longone, this exhibition features books and ephemera that define the history of American wine making from early failures and disasters to ultimate emergence in the twentieth century of wines and a wine industry second to none.

The incongruous cast of characters and events prominent in this history include Thomas Jefferson, patriotic immigrants, Napoleonís soldiers in Alabama, prohibitionists, Boston Brahmins and Madeira wine, John Locke, the American cocktail culture, and more.
