The book gives readers the knowledge they need to appreciate California wines, select a good bottle at a store or restaurant, find bargains, and pair wines with food. It also explains why some regions are renowned for wines made from specific grape varietals, and offers tips on how to get the most out of winery visits.Ed McCarthy, CWE (Baldwin, NY), is a regular contributor to Wine Enthusiast and The Wine Journal. Mary Ewing-Mulligan, MW (Baldwin, NY), is President of the International Wine Center in New York. Together, they are the authors of many For Dummies wine guides, including the perennial bestseller Wine For Dummies (978-0-470-04579-4), now in its fourth edition.
