American Wine: The Ultimate Companion to the Wines and Wineries of the United States

Jancis Robinson and Linda Murphy
February 2013

This is the first comprehensive and authoritative reference work designed to celebrate how important wine is to Americans today. Linda Murphy writes particularly engagingly on the wines, wineries and winemakers of the world's fourth biggest wine producer, the United States of America. More than 200 breathtaking photographs, profiles of key personalities and graphics bring to life the vitality of American wine culture and 54 detailed full-colour maps locate key regions, wineries, and vineyards. Organised by region, American Wine doesn't just concentrate on the well known wine states of California, Oregon, and Washington but ventures across the country to introduce gems such as racy Rieslings from Michigan and New York, Bordeaux-style wines from Virginia, bright-fruited Tempranillo from Texas and southern Oregon, and characterful Nortons from the Midwest.
