Abstract

Brandy production in California began with the Spanish missionaries, who made brandy almost as soon as their first grape plantings started to bear fruit. Development of the industry in the San Joaquin Valley, however, did not occur until the late 1800s, and University of California contributions to brandy research really began after Prohibition ended.
