The Wine Atlas of California and the Pacific Northwest is the most comprehensive survey to date of West Coast wines and the latest addition to the much-acclaimed Mitchell Beazley series of wine atlases of France, Germany, Spain, and Italy, all of which are companion volumes to Hugh Johnson's World Atlas of Wine.
In this important new atlas, Bob Thompson, a leading authority on California wine, appraises the wines, producers, and vineyards of one of the world's finest wine-producing regions. Over the past 25 years, California wines have grown in quality and status, so it is timely that this atlas should chart the expanding and fast-changing region of California and the Pacific Northwest.
Winelovers who seek to understand how good wine is made and who wish to visit the landscapes that yield their favorite wines will treasure the 36 newly commissioned maps of the wine-producing regions, showing individual vineyards and wineries, and the nearby towns and rivers. The Wine Atlas of California and the Pacific Northwest also describes touring routes around the vineyards and other tourist attractions in the regions, and recommends hotels and restaurants - all the information a wine enthusiast needs while on vacation.
