It was while enjoying a friend's bottle of out-of-state wine that renowned Napa Valley wine photographer Charles O'Rear and his wife, Daphne, decided to embark on the ultimate wine road trip. Eighteen months and 50,000 miles later, WINE ACROSS AMERICA presents the fruits of their journey, documenting the passion and pride of winegrowers, winemakers, and wine drinkers from New England to Florida, Alaska to Hawaii, and everywhere in between. The first photography book to showcase American wine country, this lavishly illustrated tribute will inform, entertain, and inspire readers to see and taste the American wine revolution for themselves.
