– Eric Asimov, New York Times

Praise for The New California Wine:
"The New California Wine delivers some of the most insightful wine writing you'll read anywhere. This is the real skinny on cutting-edge California wine from somebody who's on the ground, knows his stuff, and couldn't care less about offending the Establishment." --Matt Kramer, author and columnist for Wine Spectator
"Jon Bonné brings a clear-eyed perspective to California; this book offers a fresh look at a mature wine culture heading in surprising directions. Its new leaders are all here; its old scams get some brusque treatment, too. Essential, pithy, easy reading." --Hugh Johnson, author of The World Atlas of Wine
