A fabulous 1960s pictorial map promoting the emerging wines of California.

Details

This is a spectacular, large-format pictorial map of California by famed San Francisco artist and muralist Amado Gonzalez. With stylistic flair, the map promotes the wines of California, illustrating various wine regions within the state, including of course Napa and Sonoma, but also lesser known growing regions like Cucamonga District outside Los Angeles.

Missions, rancheros, harvesters, wine tasters, and more are all illustrated with lively colors, as are famous landmarks and scenes from California history. The overall effect is a stunning piece of art ideal for prominent display.
