I Heart Sonoma (paperback)
When writer Daedalus Howell left Hollywood and returned to his native Sonoma County in Northern California, he expected to find the rural, rolling hills of his youth. Instead he found the landscape quilted with vineyards, dotted with tasting rooms and calling itself “Wine County.”
Howell soon embarked on a journey of words and wine to find out just exactly what that means. What he discovered is a Sonoma that is as confounding as it is enchanting. In these personal essays collected from his award-winning columns, Howell recounts his experience both “through a wine glass, darkly” and rosé-tinted glasses. The result is a fine blend of hilarity, heart and hangovers.
