Janet Penn Franks, photographer, author, historian and winelover, has published another great wine book just in time for the holidays. In her new book, "Santa Barbara County Wineries," Janet profiles 50 of the area's premier wineries and six wine-tasting venues (including our affiliated wine bar - Tastes of the Valleys in Solvang) offering wines from an additional 26 local wineries.
Janet's photographs argue for keeping this book close at hand for periodic escapes to the wine country. But the custom recipes on each winery's page argue for keeping it in your recipe library. I've opted for the latter, as Janet has also made the photographs from her book available as high-quality wall prints for your escapism needs (see them here).
But that doesn't help with the third place you'll want this book - when I'm tasting at Central Coast Wineries I want a copy in my car as well. The book is a valuable resource for trip planning.
