Description - Napa County Wineries by Thomas Maxwell-Long

Situated in one of the most beautiful valleys in the state, the Napa Valley Wine Country is home to many of California's premiere wineries. As the Native California population of the area declined, more and more of the land was transformed into an agricultural community, with viticulture quickly winning out. One of the unique features that has been defining California's wine history from the earliest days of its Spanish heritage has been both the variation of the vintages and the vintners. One need only to read the names of these visionaries and wineries to gain a sense of the diversity: Beringer, Far Niente, Beaulieu, Charles Krug, and Inglenook. The picturesque setting of the roaming vineyards, along with the attractive quality of the estates and tasting rooms, has made the Napa Valley wineries one of the most popular and fast-growing tourist destinations in the state of California. In this new book, America's most celebrated wine-producing region is presented for visitors and wine connoisseurs alike, using over 200 vintage images to showcase the area's heritage, Golden Age, and incredible expansion. Alongside these photographs are collages of the famous wine labels and illustrated maps.
