When the Shafer family move to Napa Valley in the early 1970s, they quickly discover that insects, deer, wild fires, the national economy, and the ever-changing tastes of consumers riddle the dream of owning a vineyard with plenty of shocks and setbacks. This is the definitive book for anyone who wants the insider’s story of vintner life in Napa Valley in from the early 1970s to today.
