Description:

Hard covered book titled WINES OF CALIFORNIA by Robert Lawrence Balzer, 1978, burgundy cloth bound with gold lettering, with dust jacket, 271 pages.

The author takes you to 128 of the best known vineyard of California, giving the histories, descriptions of their physical layout and equipment, anecdotes about their founders and their present owners, and information and advice about their wines.
The vineyards are presented alphabetically within the framework of California's five wine regions and a detailed map in full color of each region, specially created for this book, shows their locations. An ampelography - a descriptive listing of California wine grapes - traces the connection between wines made from the same grapes in various parts of the world and clarifies the distinctions between them. The book concludes with a useful chapter on the pleasures of touring California's wine regions.
