Rolling Stone photographer’s glossy Sonoma vineyard book

Photographer George Rose’s new “Vineyard Sonoma County” ($80, www.georgerose.com) is a love letter to the wineries and grapevine-covered hills of Sonoma’s wine country. This glossy, oversized volume of photographs chronicles a wine country year, from the spring greens of budding vines to the ghostly lights of a late-night harvest.

Rose started his career as a Los Angeles Times photographer before moving on to shoot for USA Today, Time, Newsweek and Rolling Stone magazine. Now he’s traded in those rock-and-roll topics for the vineyards of Kunde Estate, Platt Vineyard and Chalk Hill Estate.

“I think everyone needs a little wine country beauty,” Rose says, especially in the wake of the devastating wine country fires this fall.

A portion of the sales of the book goes to the Sonoma County Grape Growers Foundation fund for vineyard workers affected by the fires. Best buy two copies, though: One for the coffee-table and one to take apart so you can frame all your favorite images.
