A guide to the burgeoning wine business on the northern plains

Along the Grapevine Trail is well-written, easy to read, and chock full of must-have information.”—Jeff Cox, author of From Vines to Wines: The Complete Guide to Growing Grapes and Making Your Own Wine.

"Along the Grapevine Trail is a wonderful addition to any wine-lover's library."—Ben Franklin Awards Judge

South Dakota, Wyoming, and Nebraska may not spring to mind when people think of wine, but all three states have thriving grape-growing and wine-making businesses and a burgeoning reputation among wine connoisseurs. In Along the Grapevine Trail, Starley Talbott introduces readers to many vineyards and wineries, from award-winning, large-scale vintners to family-oriented growers. Information about growing techniques, harvesting, crushing, fermenting, and bottling fill the pages and provide an excellent resource for visitors. Follow the suggested route and visit one or all. Enthusiastic growers and wonderful wines await you at each stop.

"This is an aesthetically pleasing book. It's a nice little guidebook, made on good quality paper with beautiful glossy photos that showcase the surprisingly numerous vineyards and farm wineries in the northern plains. With maps and good descriptions, it profiles the many small wineries that one can visit on trips through South Dakota, Wyoming, and Nebraska, giving the reader a taste of the history and the personality of the current owners. It is a fun armchair travel experience, as well as an indispensable tool to take along on that next vacation!"—
