It may be something about the number of grapes that get crushed, the days on the vine, the sun, or the rain, but there is a certain alchemy that takes place in the production of a bottle of wine, an alchemy that is noticeable in just one sip from any very good bottle.
In Vineyard, Andy Katz and Joy Sterling have captured this alchemy with their own talents in photographs and words. Beginning with a history of wine in California, where the most popular American wines are grown, Joy Sterling describes the precarious nature of life in the vineyard--concerns about daily variations in weather, maintaining hope through difficult seasons, and the irony in the difficulty of handling a harvest that is larger than expected. Sterling's expressive epigrams of seasons, philosophies, and perspectives of growing wine in California are accompanied by Andy Katz's crystalline photographs of vineyards in sunlight and rain, shadow and fog, abundance and rest. His photos capture the density in the light, the texture in the leaves, and the moisture in the air.
Anyone who has ever visited California will be charmed by this stunning year-round representation of the vineyards, and those who haven't will be captivated by the sheer beauty and poetry in its vistas.

Host your own wine pairing dinner at home and invite some friends. It'll be a more casual, relaxed environment than a restaurant wine pairing dinner, and you and your guests can enjoy learning about the wine together- instead of from an (often) snobby sommelier. Go to a local wine shop and ask for help with a few pairings. They are usually more than happy to help you if you commit to buying a few bottles. Make sure to ask for any literature or information they have on the wine that you can share with your guests.
