Summary California's Napa Valley is as renowned for its extraordinary beauty as it is for being the preeminent region in America for growing and producing world renowned wines. Although there are many guidebooks, cookbooks, and wine books available on this immensely popular region, there is no book that shows the Napa way of life. Napa Valley Style takes us on a private tour of the houses and magnificent gardens that make 'Napa' synonymous with 'heaven'! This lively trip through the wine country illustrates for the first time, and in lavish color, the extraordinary Victorian mansions, Italianate villas, hillside cottages, converted barns, hand-made houses, wineries, and custom-designed residences, some of which have been designed by today's most renowned architects, such as Michael Graves, Ricardo Legorreta, William Turnbull, and Herzog and de Meuron. Uniquely revealing of this extraordinary region. Napa Valley Style is a fascinating, beautifully photographed extravaganza.
