In his exceptional fifth book, Chef in the Vineyard, John Sarich presents over 140 wine-friendly recipes. The recipes are complemented by John's personal wine recommendations. Through a visual tour, John introduces ten of his favorite wineries. Each has a unique menu that features wines of that estate expertly paired with a multi-course meal designed for entertaining at home. The winery excursion surveys the unique features, history, terroir, and wines of each of the ten wineries. It begins with Washington State's historic Chateau Ste. Michelle and continues the journey through Washington, visiting Columbia Crest, Snoqualmie, Col Solare, Northstar, and Spring Valley Vineyard. Heading south, the tour explores Erath Winery in Oregon and onto California's Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, Conn Creek Winery, and Antica Napa Valley.
