Updates


The Illustrated Guide to Wineries of the Napa Valley
is unique among guidebooks in that it is a "print-on-demand" book. Although this is a more expensive way to publish, it has the advantage of enabling the author to keep you abreast of the latest winery or restaurant closures and keep you updated to changes in winery schedules and tours. The following is a list of changes which have been incorporated into the latest "Updated Edition" of the book.
