Kevin Zraly's American Wine Guide
Americans are drinking more wine now than they ever have before, and that's why the timing is so right for the publication his new guide, devoted solely to American wines. The only wine book to cover vineyards from all 50 states, it will quench our need for information and advice on this booming, underserved subject. As always, Zraly stylishly presents plenty of background, while magnificent spreads include a map of each state indicating all the grape-growing areas and labels from notable bottles. A fact box highlights the state's wine production; the number of wineries producing more and less than 5,000 cases; key varietals; and other details. The final quarter of the book features lists of Kevin's favorite picks, and will have fans rushing to the store to buy the best wines from California, Oregon, New York, and Washington.
