Wine Dogs California

California... bathed in sunshine, the birthplace of surf music and Hollywood dreams, and home to some of America s most celebrated wine estates. And wherever good wine is made, you're likely to find a dog scouting the winery or vineyard.

Wine Dogs California features over 120 wineries from the Golden State with stunning portraits of their loyal pooches. Along the way, the mutts and purebreds are interspersed with short essays by Robert Parker Jr, Cole Danehower, Eve Bushman, Jack Burton, Jennifer Rosen and Lori Crantford.

Find out which dog holds the pizza-eating record, discover the identity of Sonoma's infamous lingerie thief and see Elvis, Bob Marley and Keith Richards battle it out for the title of 'top dog'.

Wine Dogs California is a photographic journal of stunning pictures and great stories: created all for the love of dogs and wines.
