dc.description.abstract It was May 24, 1976, a bright and sunny day in Paris, at the InterContinental Hotel where both French and California wines would be judged “by four criteria eye, nose, mouth, and harmony giving each a score on the basis of 20 points.”1 From the Twelve California wines six Chardonnays and six Cabernet Sauvignons were selected by Steven Spurrier, and from those twelve nine came from Napa Valley, and three came from the Santa Cruz Mountains.1 French Wine has set the standard for wine growers all over but world but here for the first time there was a startling upset California wines had ranked higher than the French wines in both red and white winning notoriety as a reputable wine growing region. Anyone from Southern California today might ask why was there not one wine from Southern California? There were several forces acting on California’s development converting well known regions of citrus and vineyards for land development, effecting cities from Los Angeles to San Bernardino county where Rancho Cucamonga alone had more acres devoted to wine grape varieties out growing both Napa and Sonoma Valley combined during the 1940s and through the fifties; however, this would not last with the passing of every decade as World War II sparked uncontrollable economic growth during a time of new studies and innovation in the wine industry. en
