Over the past three decades, a wine revolution has been taking place across the United States. There are now more than 7,000 American wine producers -- up from 440 in 1970 -- and the best bottles are every bit as good as the finest wines of Europe. American Wine is the first comprehensive and authoritative reference on the wines, wineries, and wine makers of America. Written by world-renowned wine author Jancis Robinson and U.S. wine expert Linda Murphy, this book is the natural companion to the international bestseller, The World Atlas of Wine. More than 200 breathtaking photographs, profiles of key personalities, and informational graphics bring to life the vitality of American wine culture and 54 detailed full-color maps locate key regions, wineries, and vineyards. Organized by geographical region, American wine concentrates on areas such as California that produce the finest wines, yet ventures across the entire country to introduce gems such as Rieslings from Michigan, bright-fruited Tempranillo from Texas and southern Oregon, and uniquely characterful Nortons from the Midwest.
