The newest collaboration between travel journalist, Karen Misuraca, and the award-winning photographer, Gary Crabbe, Voyageur Press' spectacular new "coffee-table" sized book is filled with the beauty and romance of the Wine Country. The mystique and history of California's wine-growing regions are captured in full glory, and laid out in easy itinerary form. From the misty northern appellations of Mendocino County to the dry flatlands of Paso Robles, from the heartlands of Napa and Sonoma to the wilds of the Santa Cruz Mountains and along the placid Russian River, Misuraca and Crabbe lead you on an informative and vibrant tour of the wine valleys. This a perfect gift for wine lovers and armchair travelers, and for your own travel book library.
