Sip California by Lena Katz Having personally visited and tasted with someone from 900+ commercial producers within Napa County to date, whenever a wine tasting book comes across our desk our ears perk up – especially when such book provides information about the Napa Valley. This book covers all the major wine tasting regions of California listing top vineyards, wineries, culinary treats and related wine country attractions.
What is refreshing about this book is that it lists a number of totally off the beaten path wineries that only a “local” would know about. Napa has been written about more times than a dead horse and it is always nice to read about our favorite wine region from a unique angle. Among the most valuable of this books contributions are local individuals who contribute their suggestions in the form of quotes and or interviews. Pay attention to their “favorites”! This is a must read for both oenophiles as well as those new to wine.
