Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The beginning of history for California wine starts with 17th-century , but the industry and commercial powerhouse that commands 60 percent of the United States market was birthed 200 years later, the product of a Hungarian aristocrat, European grapes, and the Sonoma Valley. In this groundbreaking book by historian and bestselling author Charles L. Sullivan, the untold history of Sonoma wine serves as backdrop to the turbulent story of California s first commercial winery, Buena Vista, from its founding by brilliant but quixotic Agoston Haraszthy, through phyloxera plague and the dry years of prohibition to its present-day market prominence. Sonoma Wine and the Story of Buena Vista is a scholarly study of two centuries of California wine history, told in a riveting narrative that will engage and delight.

Sullivan has written more than one hundred articles for major wine and food journals and is the author of many books on the subject of wine history, including A Companion to California Wine: An Encyclopedia of Wine & Winemaking from the Mission Days to Present, Napa Wine, and Zinfandel: A History of a Grape and its Wine.
