Wine Country USA is the first and only book to cover this new phenomenon. Full of gorgeous photography that shows the picturesque landscapes of these new wine areas, this book will inspire you to explore the amazing wineries in your own backyard. In ten "Vine Routes" features, there are recommended vineyards mapped out to plan your visit-from Pennsylvania's Brandywine Valley to North Carolina's Piedmont, from Colorado's Grande River to California's Napa Valley. The "Ten Labels to Look For"
Did you know that upstate New York produces outstanding riesling? Or that in Michigan you can find some of the best dessert ice wines in the world? How about Texas's hill country, whose arid environment yields a tempranillo to rival Spain's finest? Today, high-quality wineries have sprung up all across the country. It's not just about California anymore. In fact, chances are there is a tasting trail where you can discover lovely wines within just a day's drive-no matter where you live.
