5.0 out of 5 stars New California Wine Companion destined to become a standard
I am the librarian at the Sonoma County Wine Library, and I have known Charles Sullivan for some years. His newest work will probably be THE one volume reference on California wine from now on. In concise and informative entries, Sullivan encompasses the whole of California's rich wine heritage. He covers all the varietals and most of the wineries A to Z. His...

2.0 out of 5 stars A good comparative look at wineries and their wine making styles.
This book is of some value to me as it allows me to see how winemakers in their times strived to make good an fine wine. The book is of more value when read with other such style books for compare and contrast reasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars New California Wine Companion destined to become a standard, October 3, 1998
This review is from: A Companion to California Wine: An Encyclopedia of Wine and Winemaking from the Mission Period to the Present (Hardcover)
I am the librarian at the Sonoma County Wine Library, and I have known Charles Sullivan for some years. His newest work will probably be THE one volume reference on California wine from now on. In concise and informative entries, Sullivan encompasses the whole of California's rich wine heritage. He covers all the varietals and most of the wineries A to Z. His writing is insightful, dispassionate and fluid, and his research is superb.

A friend told me about this book, published by the University of California. Very good resource and a recommended read if you're into wine. Nicely published.

Charles Sullivan is the man to read if you want an insider's view of California Wine history. His books are well-researched and entertaining, as well as informative.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Delightful Companion, February 25, 2001
By 
Vin R. Danaergh (Whitefish, Montana) - See all my reviews
This review is from: A Companion to California Wine: An Encyclopedia of Wine and Winemaking from the Mission Period to the Present (Hardcover)
This lean volume is everything you'd want in a companion: Lively, intoxicating, and beautiful in appearance; her lean, supple prose swells provocatively beneath the sheer, black jacket that clings suggestively to this tight, curvaceaous body of work. But she is more than a sensual treat! Her wit, though not of the highest order, gives some delight as well and one would be proud to appear with this companion under one's arm even at a Mensa gathering.
