This guidebook gives you everything you need to know when touring California’s beautiful wine country

If California were an independent nation it would be the fourth leading wine-producing country in the world after Italy, France and Spain. And nowhere else will you find more visitor-friendly wineries. Sampling these and tasting their wines is a rewarding experience, but, faced with the bewildering variety of wineries on offer, it’s hard to know where to start. This book guides the wine tourist—not only through the better-known regions of Napa and Sonoma, but also the Central Coast, Santa Barbara County and Southern California—and gives ample recommendations on where to stay and eat in and around each region.

A Traveller’s Wine Guide to California contains spectacular photography as well as easily-accessible information on such topics as The Winery Experience and The System of Classification and Grape Varieties.
