The Napa Valley has been recognized as the premier wine producing area of California since the 1870s. This is the first study that explains how Napa acquired this unique reputation. The soils, climate, grapes and human resources that have built this panorama of viticultural excellence over 160 years. The author has visited every historic sight and talked with every living history resource as well as dug into the original documents and periodicals. Published in cooperation with the Napa Valley Wine Library, every attention to scholarly detail has been given. The modern wine lover will appreciate the connections between the original vineyards and today's great wine producers. Fascinating for any wine aficionado or history buff.
