Washington Wines and Wineries: The Essential Guide

Washington Wines and Wineries: The Essential Guide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


During the thirty-five years wine critic and writer Paul Gregutt has lived in the state of Washington, its wine industry has ballooned from a mere half dozen wineries to nearly five hundred. Washington Wines and Wineries offers a comprehensive, critical, and accessible account of the nation's second largest wine-producing region. Gregutt, who has covered Washington wine in books, newspapers, and magazines since the mid-1980s, enthusiastically dispenses information along with his editorial opinion, displaying the depth of his knowledge of the area, the players, the regions, and the wines. He points out the best vineyards, the most accomplished winemakers, the must-have wines, and the newcomers to watch. He rates wineries, not wines, with a unique and detailed 100-point scale, providing an insider's view of the best that Washington state has to offer. As the global wine industry reinvents itself for twenty-first-century palates, Washington is poised to become as important and influential as California on the world stage. Washington Wines and Wineries is the definitive reference book on the subject.

Synopsis:

"Unquestionably the most comprehensive book on the topic, "Washington Wines and Wineries" is a new benchmark in learning about this exciting wine region."--Evan Goldstein, author of "Perfect Pairings"

"I never miss a chance for lunch or a tasting with Paul Gregutt. He is an eclectic student of wine and an astute taster who never takes himself too seriously. But his Washington Wines and Wineries is a serious publication. The number of Washington wineries has exploded since the turn of the millennium. There are several important new AVAs. Many wonderful wines are being made. So there was an urgent need for this splendid new guide, written with passion and authority. No one who loves Washington wines--in fact, no one serious about wine--should fail to get a copy."and#151;Oz Clarke
