California accounts for 81 percent of all wines produced in the United States and is the fourth largest wine producer in the world behind France, Italy, and Spain. The California wine industry has an annual impact of $57.6 billion on the state’s economy and $114 billion on the national economy. Wine is the number one finished agricultural product in the state. This course examines the major legal issues facing the wine industry in the areas of constitutional law, administrative law, and intellectual property. Specific topics include Prohibition and Twenty-first Amendment jurisprudence, federal and state alcohol beverage regulatory systems, wine labeling, appellations of origin and comparative legal and policy considerations between the wine, beer and spirits categories.
