American Wine is the first comprehensive and authoritative reference to the wines, wineries, and winemakers of the USA. Written by world-renowned wine writer Jancis Robinson and US wine expert Linda Murphy, it charts the history of wine in America. From the cachet of California to the underdog accomplishments of Michigan and Colorado, the story of American wine has only begun to be told. It charts how America fell in love with wine. From wine production's beginnings in the bathtubs and backyards of recent immigrants to the superb wines the country is producing today, American Wine celebrates all that is truly American about the grape. It looks in unprecedented detail and breadth at the current state of American wine production, its wine regions, terroirs, wineries, vineyards and the larger-than-life characters that populate the American wine scene.The book is organized by geographical regions - West, Southwest, Midwest, Northeast and Southeast. Some states have only a handful of wineries, while others have hundreds or more. Weighted toward the regions that produce the finest wines, it also includes wineries from Hawaii to Florida, Temecula to Maine. American Wine is a major milestone in its story.
