An impressive piece of work and a wonderful portrait of the personalities behind one of California's distinctive wine regions. And how fitting that like the wines, the book is big, bold, and vibrant. --Alder Yarrow, Founder & Editor of VINOGRAPHY
Paul Hodgins and Julia Perez's "The Winemakers of Paso Robles" tells the stories behind the label of passionate, maverick vintners making wine on the California Central Coast. This gorgeous work of photography and prose is more than just a coffee table book, it's an enticing guide to the lively personalities, grape varietals, from cabernet to the wide range of Rhone varietals, and the scenic beauty that make Paso a unique wine growing region. You'll meet the pioneers, cult producers and new generation pushing the boundary on wine quality and winemaking techniques. The Winemakers is best enjoyed with a glass of Paso Robles grown and made wine. --Mary Orlin, The Mercury News and @WineFashionista
From the Author
As the wine writer for The Orange County Register, one of my favorite topics over the last decade has been the meteoric rise of Paso Robles as a wine region. When I first visited in the 1980s, there were more cattle than people in the area and only a handful of winemakers. Now there are well over 200 bonded wineries nestled in the hills and plains surrounding this quaint Central California town, and a few of them have been showered with praise, prizes and 100-point scores. Robert Parker, an early champion, thinks Paso Robles holds Napa's potential, but on a much larger scale. Within its 11 sub-regions are a vast array of micro-climates, soils and geologies, and a group of artisanal winemakers, many still under 40, are cracking the land's secrets to refine their mastery of Bordeaux and Rhone varieties as well as Zinfandel, Pinot Noir and Italian and Spanish grapes. In The Winemakers of Paso Robles I profile more than 50 winemakers and winery owners, letting each tell his or own unique story about the passion, toil, happy accidents and sublime insights that have led to making great wine in Paso Robles. Photographer Julia Perez provides a wealth of intimate and beautiful photos that reveal the indomitable, quirky and charming personalities of these singular men and women. This is the first book to look in detail at the people behind one of America's most important new wine regions.
