Hop ‘N Vine festival is harvesting history

Published Thursday March 2

Foxx will be at the Hop N Vine festival on March eleven at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds to talk about the wines produced in the Santa Clara Valley, as well as the grapes they come from.

San Jose was ahead of the curve when it came to Prohibition, voting to ban alcohol sales 2 years before the rest of the nation went dry.

That 1918 vote curtailed what had been a thriving beer- and wine-making industry in the Santa Clara Valley, which in the mid-1800s was peppered with breweries and wineries, as well as hundreds of acres devoted to growing the hops and grapes that went into those beverages.

Article length: About 790 words.
