A comprehensive guide to the must-have wines and producers of California's "new generation," and the stories of the iconoclastic young winemakers who have changed the face of California winemaking in recent years.
The New California Wine is the untold story of the California wine industry: the innovative young producers who are rewriting the rules of contemporary winemaking; their quest to express the unique character of California's terroir; and the ongoing battle to move the state away from the overly technocratic and reactionary practices of its recent past. Jon Bonné writes from the front lines of the California wine revolution, where he has access to the stories, philosophies, and techniques of the best producers.
In this groundbreaking first book, Bonné paints an unflinching portrait of the current state of the industry: its strengths and weaknesses, its essential wines and those not worth discovering. Sumptuous full-color photographs, as well as a region-by-region tour of some of California's lesser-known production areas, reveal the people and places behind the bottles. Finally, a comprehensive buying reference lists all the must-have producers and their best wines, making The New California Wine an essential resource for finding and buying the best the state has to offer.
