" Here is the much-needed definitive guide for the consumer of American wines, an intensive
and remarkably informative study of wines and wineries from New York to California.
It is an examination of an industry on the rise, producing barely 5 million gallons in the
post-Prohibition days of the thirties to more than 200 million gallons in the seventies.
In an era of technological perfection, concludes the author - one of America's foremost wine
experts - most American wine is good, or, at least improving; the best rivals the prestigious
labels of Europe.
The book looks back to the past and ahead to the future, but most important it supplies
numerous buying, tasting, and drinking insights not previously available. "
