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.
