Internationally honored as the "Best of the U.S." in the Wine Atlas/Tourism Book category for the 2007 Gourmand International Competition
“A copious compendium on wineries, B&Bs, and eateries on a vinous road trip stretching some 1,800 serpentine miles from Temecula to Walla Walla and just about everywhere in between. An invaluable guide to the many wine regions on the West Coast, from famed Napa/Sonoma to little-known pockets of viticultural heaven, I’m sure this book will be dog-eared and wine-stained by many for years to come.”---Rex Pickett, author of Sideways
"What could be better than meandering down a two-lane highway in the vine-covered hills of West Coast wine country with frequent stops to sample the products of local wineries? -- Well, how about a delicious meal and a beautiful place to spend the night at the end of a long, strenuous day of tasting! It’s all here in the Two-Lane Gourmet -- picturesque back-road routes, artisan wineries, wonderful restaurants and charming inns -- as well as first-hand encounters with the individuals that make it all happen. This little book is so full of enticing possibilities it makes me want to jump in the car, fill ‘er up and go!"
-- Alan Tardi, author of Romancing the Vine
“An unabashedly sentimental journey along roads less traveled, written with warmth and wit. Tom Snyder taps into the sweet, seductive heartbeat of inns, wineries, and restaurants well worth a lingering visit.”
---Ellen Crosby, author of The Chardonnay Charade
