This week’s show is sure to be FUN and informative.   Linda Murphy Co-Author with Jancis Robinson and one of the top wine writers in the USA joins us to talk about her new book “American Wine – The Ultimate Companion to the Wines and Wineries of the United States.”  Get a copy today!

Over the past three decades, a wine revolution has been taking place across the United States. There are now more than 7,000 American wine producers–up from 440 in 1970–and the best bottles are every bit as good as the finest wines of Europe. American Wine is the first comprehensive and authoritative reference on the wines, wineries, and winemakers of America. Written by world-renowned wine author Jancis Robinson and U.S. wine expert Linda Murphy, this book is the natural companion to the international bestseller, The World Atlas of Wine. More than 200 breathtaking photographs, profiles of key personalities, and informational graphics bring to life the vitality of American wine culture and 54 detailed full-color maps locate key regions, wineries, and vineyards. Organized by geographical region, American Wine concentrates on areas such as California, Oregon, and Washington that produce the best-known wines, and 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.
