      This beautifully illustrated book is a must-have for growers, vintners, and enthusiasts. Inside you'll find information on ripening periods for 53 varieties grown in California, ripening dates of varieties by period and growing district, and detailed illustrations of grapevine structure. Most valuable of all is the discussion of the 36 major wine grape varieties grown in the state. VERDICT American wine buffs, especially those who enjoy California wine, will find this an engaging book in a niche between John Kiger's very specific Vineyard Odyssey: The Organic Flight To Save Wine from the Ravages of Nature and DK Publishing's broader Great Everyday Wines.—Ginny Wolter, Toledo-Lucas Cty. P.L.

      For this powerful successor to his best-selling guide to California wine, Charles E. Olken has joined forces with Joseph Furstenthal to craft The New Connoisseurs' Guidebook to California Wine and Wineries. An encyclopedia, atlas, and buying guide combined in one comprehensive, authoritative work, this new guide delivers information and guidance that is not available in any other place. The wines of Tuscany were famous long before Leonardo da Vinci described them as bottled sunshine, and they are at the forefront of the remarkable renaissance of Italian wine over the past 30 years. In this groundbreaking new book, Nicolas Belfrage shares his insider's knowledge acquired as a specialist wine trader and writer.

        The Best Wines From California - The Reverse Wine Snob Picks. California is the number one wine producer in the United States. While the state is best known for Cabernet and Chardonnay, one of my very favorite varieties found here is producers throughout California do an excellent job with this grape which expresses itself differently in cool climates than it does hot . Divided into three parts — a narrative, a tour of emerging regions and an authoritative purchasing reference — it is a necessary addition to any wine lover’s bookshelf. The New California Wine won the Roederer Award for International Wine Book of the Year, and was shortlisted for the James Beard and André Simon awards.
