Raise a glass to Kevin Zraly's tasty tribute to American
wines! Just like his bestselling Windows on the World Wine Course,
this is as essential to wine-lovers as the bottles
winner of the 2006 Wine Literary Award, brings you this revised
edition of the only guide that covers the wines and wineries of all
fifty states. (Yes-including Alaska!) Zraly has noted that
"Americans are drinking more wine now than they ever have before,"
and his sparkling work quenches our need for advice on this
booming, underserved subject. It has everything previously
included-the fascinating history and background details,
magnificent spreads with maps of the wine-growing areas, handsome
labels, fact boxes on each state, great wine selections (many at
under $15)-and lots more. Along with updated information
throughout, there's greatly expanded entries for eight states:
Oklahoma, Kentucky, Arizona, Maryland, Tennessee, Wisconsin, New
Mexico, and Connecticut.
Zraly offers his expert and up-to-the minute picks by varietal and
price range, all based on their ready availability throughout the
country. Filled with accessible information and Zraly's love of
wine and winemaking, this handy, incisive volume is the perfect
resource for understanding and enjoying American wine.
