The New California Wine
The New California Wine (Ten Speed Press) is the untold story of the California wine industry: the young, innovative producers who are rewriting the rules of contemporary winemaking; their quest to express the uniqueness of California terroir; and the continuing battle to move the state away from the overly technocratic, reactionary practices of its recent past.
Jon Bonné’s detailed writing is complemented by stunning images from award-winning photojournalist Erik Castro.
Divided into three parts — a narrative, a tour of emerging regions and an authoritative purchasing reference — it is a necessary addition to any wine lover’s bookshelf.
The New California Wine won the Roederer Award for International Wine Book of the Year, and was shortlisted for the James Beard and André Simon awards.
