A late 1970s pictorial bird’s-eye-view of the northern California wine region.

Details

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.
