Review

Down to Earth is more than a phrase in this beautiful book; it's a philosophy of what it means to be green in California wine. With regional overviews, mouthwatering recipes, and producer profiles, Janet Fletcher's compelling storytelling and George Rose's world-class photography combine in a feast for the mind and the eyes. --Leslie Sbrocco, Wine Consultant; Author of The Simple & Savvy Wine Guide; and Television Host, Check Please! Bay Area

How wonderful to see sustainability become a mainstay in our vocabulary. Explaining a concept that can be difficult to grasp, Down to Earth speaks to the novice wine consumer about the meaning of sustainability with thoughtful language and beautiful imagery. It also speaks to the wine professional -- celebrating the incredible work that our industry has achieved and reminding us of the ways in which sustainability happens all year round. --Emily Wines, MS, Beverage Director, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants

I'm delighted to see the California wine industry emerge as a leader in sustainable winegrowing. Down to Earth documents the journey. These stories of individuals and families who have put the sustainable ethos at the heart of their businesses should inspire wine lovers around the globe. --Sarah Kemp, Publlishing Director, Decanter

I found this book while researching for a seminar I conducted recently on sustainable winegrowing, The book, and the accompanying links to the websites supporting it, proved to be a priceless source of information for anyone seeking knowledge on sustainable viticulture and estate management. The book has an excellent format following the seasons of the year, and highlights a number of California vintners that are dedicated stewards of the land and the people they employ. I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking to learn how the wine industry has embraced sustainability in their best practices.

Down to Earth is both beautiful and important. Sustainability is a complicated topic. This book is the perfect tour through the subject, the land, the practices and the people who are making a difference in California. An excellent book, so very well researched and brought to life with the masterful photography of George Rose.
