Overview

This indispensable guide provides a fascinating look at the history and personal stories behind more than 60 of the mid-coast and inland California region’s wineries, their owners, their winemakers, and their families. Each and every winery featured in the book was personally visited by the authors, including once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to go behind the scenes of both mom-and-pop and mega-corporation wineries and to write about those experiences in the book. Some of the better known winery owners/winemakers interviewed include the brother of golfer Tom Watson, the husband/winemaker of Olympic skater Peggy Fleming, and Paul Draper (Ridge Vineyards/Monte Bello), one of the key winemakers in the famed 1976 Judgment of Paris wine competition. The book includes contact information for each of the wineries, as well as wine myths and tasting-room etiquette. There is also winery association and visitor center information and detailed side-trip suggestions to local museums, historic sites, and state and regional parks.
