Publishers Text

Back in print! The story of Napa Valley winemaking is the story of its people - their triumphs and failures, their passion and commitment, and their ongoing struggle to produce world-class wines. In Michael Chiarello's stories and profiles, we meet the people who make the wine that gives Napa Valley its singular reputation. As Chiarello points out, the best wines are more than just grapes, soil, and weather; there is a hint of the winemaker's we can taste the history and effort that has shaped every glass.

In addition, the book includes vignettes that explain the winemaking process as a series of critical decisions - which varietals to plant where, how to trellis, whether to use barrel fermentation or stainless steel, what method of blending is best, even what kind of cork to use.

Includes 6 menus, 20 recipes in all created by Chiarello for special Napa Valley celebrations with the profiled winemakers.
