Not yet rated | write a review

When Charles Sullivan penned his 1982 book Like Modern Edens it was the first full-scale regional history of California Wine published. When the first edition of Napa Wine hit in 1994 it was the second. This new edition brings to light a decade of dramatic changes and shifted norms visited upon the valley, from pholoxera-wasted vineyards to court-officiated, direct-to-consumer shipping, told in a rousing, transportive narrative. This rich and informative history has been painstakingly documented and illustrated. Many of the photos have never been seen in print. The many charts and tables provide a statistical overview of Napa winegrowing never before available. This is a book for all wine lovers.

About the Book

Sullivan's 1994 "Napa Wine: A History" is the engaging story of the rise to prominence of what many believe to be the greatest wine-growing area in the Western Hemisphere. This new edition brings to light more than a decade of dramatic changes and shifted norms visited upon the valley, from phylloxera-wasted vineyards to high court-officiated territorial battles, told in a rousing, transportive narrative.

Editorial Reviews

"Sullivan has given us, in gripping detail, a history of wine in the state. Napa Wine makes a rich and exciting contribution to our understanding of who Americans are -- and why."
