We will sell no wine map before its time.
I'm pretty sure that Paul Masson did not
say that over a century ago, but the words do apply here. After many production delays our Wine Map of California
is finally available. Thank you for your patience!
In the spirit of shameless marketing and selling more maps, I'd like to share a few more ways to use them:

Mount the map on foamboard and use it to plot new adventures or to remember where you've been. You can also attach it to your windshield as a crude form of sat-nav (not recommended by the California Highway Patrol).

The wine map wallpaper idea is the favorite of our marketing department since it involves purchasing a serious amount of maps.

This is my favorite and the most fun. It was sent to me by Cathy Jones who snapped this shot from her husband's recent birthday celebration. In Cathy's words:
He had taken up drinking an occasional Rioja after we traveled to Spain a few years ago. And he really liked your wine table that I bought for our anniversay last summer. Since then we have been trying to sample different varietals whenever we can. After getting your map, I made an impulse trip and purchased as many bottle of Spanish wines as I could find from the different regions. On his birthday, as he pulled each bottle from the box, we placed it on the map in the appropriate location. In this way, we were able to refresh our knowlege of Spanish geography and expand our repertoire of Spanish wines. We had quite a party after that. In fact, a couple of bottles "disappeared" before I thought to snap this picture. Needless to say, we are looking forward to your next map...
Thank you Cathy!
If you have any other creative ways to use these maps, please feel free to share them.
