CLICK HERE to download the first two chapters from The Green Vine * A charismatic guide to understanding environmentally-friendly wines — from defining labels to reviewing vineyard practices * Features personally-tested profiles of sustainable wines that everyone needs to try * California, Washington, and Oregon rank #1–3 nationally as having the most wineries per state Most people don’t want to think about their wine too much; they just want to enjoy it. At the same time, more and more people are thinking about where their food comes from. Why not ask the same questions about wine? It’s a product that faces many of the same industry, environment, and economic issues as that sustainable steak or fresh home-grown salad on your plate. Traditional wine production is currently under threat from increasingly homogenized commercial processes and suffers from a large carbon footprint — from bottle and cork materials to water runoff and erosion. Many winemakers are starting to take environmental stewardship very seriously, changing how they grow grapes and make wine. With The Green Vine, wine expert Shannon Borg demystifies the terms of sustainable wine-making and lays out a simple guide to West Coast wines and wineries that use both historical and modern sustainable practices. She explains why it’s important to consider how wine is produced and packaged, and why growing methods, soil health, and water resources matter. She then embarks on a wine-tasting tour of nearly 200 sustainable wineries in Washington, Oregon, Northern California, British Columbia, and Idaho — profiling the winemakers and farmers who are leading the green Wine movement.

Award-winning food writer and photographer Capalbo has traveled around Georgia collecting recipes and gathering stories from food and winemakers in this stunning but little-known country. The beautifully illustrated book is both a cookbook and a cultural guide to the personal, artisan-made foods and wines that make Georgia such a special place on the worlds gastronomic map.

In the vineyards, wine caves, and cellars of France as war and occupation came to the country winemakers acted heroically not only to save the best wines but to defend their way of life. These are the true stories of vignerons who sheltered Jewish refugees in their cellars and of winemakers who risked their lives to aid the resistance. They made chemicals in secret laboratories to fuel the resistance and fled from the Gestapo when arrests became imminent. There were treacheries too, as some of the nation's winemakers supported the Vichy regime or the Germans themselves and collaborated. Donald Kladstrup is a retired American network correspondent. He and his wife Petie have accumulated these fascinating stories, told with the pace and action that will fascinate fiction and non-fiction readers alike.
