This is a weekly feature to keep you informed about the real estate happenings in Yountville.

FACTS ETC Yountville Tidbits
This week I decided to include what I will call Yountville Tidbits. These are a bunch of fun, historic or arbitrary facts about Yountville I have picked up through the years.
- The Vintage 1870 (now V Marketplace) originally was constructed as a 400,000 gallon capacity winery by Gottlieb Groezinger. He bought the land (370 acres) from Henry R. Boggs on June 23, 1870 for $11,000, only to see it totally destroyed by a fire on Sept. 20, 1876.
- During Prohibition, Yountville was know as the booze capital of the North Bay, with many arrests and even some deaths attributed thereto.
- In 1924, one of the better know bootleggers, Andy Zandro, proprietor of the Yountville Inn, ran a ring of 5 bootleggers out of a small cabin in the heart of Yountville. He was arrested by the sheriff, Joe Harris, but never brought to trial.
