Jon Bonné’s The New California Wine Hits Bookstores

Jon Bonne wine writer

San Francisco Chronicle Wine Critic Jon Bonné’s long-awaited book, The New California Wine, hits bookstores today. The book is part manifesto, part guidebook weaved together by Bonné’s personal experience following California’s journey from the excesses of 1980s and 1990s to the generational (and stylistic) shift represented by its present avant-garde. For anyone who has any interest in either America or wine, this is an important one. [Photo: Erik Castro]
