The wine industry is growing at an enormous rate throughout the last few decades. Originally, it was a drink for the sophisticated and the average American did not have access to it. However, within the past few decades that trend has changed and more and more Americans are drinking wine. [return][return]With the growing tradition of wine in America, the big names have become Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley in California. However, vineyard are continually starting and growing throughout the country, and New England is growing into a wine hotbed that deserves attention.[return][return]Christopher and Nancy Obert take us on a journey to many New England vineyards in their book The Next Harvest: Vineyards and Wineries of New England. The book is a large, text-book sized adventure into New England and includes the various wine trails or tours the authors have taken. These trails are not only described, but include full colored maps of the wineries and the main roads connecting them together.[return][return]The second section of the book consists of chapters for each state, and sections in each chapter for the state's vineyards. Each winery has all of the contact information, several colored photographs, a description of the winery and a description of several of its more notable wines. [return][return]This handy layout offers an easy to access compendium of information for many wineries in New England which would be a great asset in planning a wine tasting vacation in an area that is not necessarily known as a wine country. [return][return]A quick perusal of The Next Harvest and Christopher and Nancy will surely convince you otherwise - and have you salivating at the thought of planning a wine touring vacation in New England.
