    Two other great books about history and wine:

    Don Kladstrup : Wine and war
    Paul Lukacs : Inventing wine, a new history of one of the world’s most ancient pleasures

    Two excellent books set in Washington State: The Wine Project by Ron Irvine and Walter Clore (a not your typical history book; and The Winemaker’s Daughter by Tim Egan, a story of greed and honor set in the framework of a father’s vineyard and winery.
