Description

This wonderful pictorial map depicts the northern California wine country from Napa and Sonoma as far north as Ukiah. In the upper right foreground is an illustration of a large hot air ballon, with three adventurers gazing down at the earth below. The effect is to transport the viewer up into the sky with the ballon, creating a classic bird’s-eye-view perspective.

What truly makes this map a unique snapshot of winemaking in this era are its depictions of individual wineries down to the individual building detail, including: Mondavi, Sebastiani, Korbel, Rutherford, Kenwood, Alexander Valley, and many more.
