“Geraci presents a fresh look at the California wine revolution from the viewpoint of hinterland wine producers and offers a challenging global perspective that will serve to continue debate and discussion about wine, food, and agriculture. Salud! charts the trajectory of Santa Barbara wine producers in a globalizing economy.” —Greig Tor Guthey, Southern California Quarterly, Spring 2005
“People who are interested in Santa Barbara county history, wine connoisseurs, and owners of wineries would find this book useful and interesting. Public historians and other scholars will find the chapters on California and Santa Barbara County, as well as the bibliography, quite useful.” —Lawrence J. Jelinke,The Public Historian, Fall 2004
