Description - Pacific Pinot Noir by John Winthrop Haeger
Featuring more than two hundred in-depth winery profiles, this definitive guide is the best single source of information on world-renowned pinot noirs from California and Oregon. Drawing on his encyclopedic knowledge of a grape variety considered by many to produce the ultimate food wine, John Winthrop Haeger offers this expanded, updated companion volume to his award-winning "North American Pinot Noir". Here, with three times the number of winery profiles, he focuses exclusively on what he calls the Pacific Pinot Zone, stretching from the mouth of the Columbia River in Oregon to Santa Barbara in California and extending up to thirty miles inland.An introductory essay provides an indispensable view of pinot noir in the United States - including the dramatic effect that the movie Sideways has had on its sales and production. "Pacific Pinot Noir" features: detailed descriptive tasting notes and selected vertical tastings; at-a-glance graphics conveying information on tasting rooms, prices, and production for each winery; regional maps showing key viticultural areas; and, contact information for each winery.
