The Healdsburg Light was inspired by the history of the immigrant families who came to Healdsburg and ultimately gave the town its identity. In the fall of 1919, California saw one of its greatest grape harvests ever. On Saturday, January 17, 1920 at 12:01 AM, Prohibition went into effect. This light is for those who risked everything, a tribute to those who broke the law and fought Prohibition. It is because of them that the American wine industry is what it is today.
