Rock and Vine: Next Generation Changemakers in Americas Wine Country by Chelsea Prince

wine2Rock and Vine: Next Generation Changemakers in Americas Wine Country by Chelsea Prince.

This beautiful coffee table book whisks you away on a tour of California vineyards. This isn’t merely a book serving up wine eye candy…you are also enlightened on the process of making wine, the importance of the soils, terrain and the “behind the scenes” to turn a phrase of Napa and Sonoma Valley winemakers. The young people profiled are the new generation of winemakers.


From back in the 60s and 70s many California wineries were family owned operations. That legacy is passed down to the children where they are using their own innovative ideas and methods to produce good wines for us to enjoy now. Who understands wine making better than one who grows up immersed in the business, the culture, the vines.

Author Chelsea Prince and photographer Mary Steinbacher put together a beautiful book.
