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 themselves.
Kevin Zraly, 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.
