THE SIGNATURE WINES OF SUPERIOR CALIFORNIA:
A new California wine book by Mike Dunne
First off, I wrote the Introduction to this work, self published by Sacramento’s former Bee Wine and Food editor, D. Michael Dunne. We have been friends for a long time. Mike Dunne has, without a doubt, the best exposure to the vineyards and wines of the area surrounding Sacramento than anyone I know. He has lived the experience and has written about the area for almost fifty years
The half title of the work is “50 wines that define the Sierra Foothills, the Delta, Yolo, and Lodi.” And it does just that. It is a particularly nice blend of tasting information and actual history, both of a specific winery and the region it is in. Mike has lived most of the places, people and wines he writes about, making this a real treasure of information for the novice, and also for the well read and traveled wine knowledgeable drinker, who doubtless will find nuggets of information that were probably unknown. I know I did! It is a very lovely production in paperback, with an immensely readable text, which merits your attention. So far, nothing similar is on the market.
