With the new book on wine on the shelves now the wine enthusiasts surely have a reason to celebrate. Thanks to the authors of Wines of California: The Comprehensive Guide, who have deeply and cosmicly covered each and every winery, vineyards with detailed tasting notes in this book.

To begin with, Authors Mike DeSimone and Jeff Jensen have mentioned the numerous grape varietals California is known for and the various wine growing regions, appelations and the wineries.

Apart from rolling out the wineries, they have lucidly mentioned the iconoclasts and the top chefs with various Californian food and wine to match with it.

The second half of the book has a detailed conversation with the esteemed personalities from the Californian wine world like the celebrated Bo Barret, Barbara Banke, Emilio Estevez to name a few.
