This splashy pictorial map depicts California's famous Wine Country as it might appear from the vantage of a hot air balloon. The map spans from Asti south to Napa and identifies Geyserville, Healdsburg, Sonoma, Calistoga, St. Helena, and more. It's decorated by a title cartouche taking the form of a hot air balloon and a compass rose. The verso contains a small map of Mendocino & Lake County wineries along with a large table listing wineries in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, and Lake counties. The map, first issued in 1981, was designed by Ron Morales and issued as a pamphlet by Graphic Concepts Co., based in Santa Rosa.
