I disagree with the emphasis on the notion that the famous Paris tasting made everything possible. It was certainly a catalyst and an important event, but the Napa Valley was well under way beforehand. Certainly in 1970 or 1972 one needed a map to find the wineries, but by 1976 it was hard to avoid them.
Many Napa wineries made their first wines in the years 1970-76: Carneros Creek, Clos du Val, Stags Leap (both), Phelps, Mt Veeder, Caymus, Burgess, Cakebread, Domaine Chandon, Rutherford Hill, Ch Montelena, Diamond Creek. Just before this period: Chappellet, Sterling, Cuvaison, Spring Mtn, Schramsberg. Outside of Napa new wineries that saw their start at this time: Ridge in 1962, Fetzer in 1968, followed by Landmark, Ch St Jean, Jordan, Clos du Bois, Dehlinger, Dry Creek, Firestone, Zaca Mesa, Ravenswood, Swan. I liked the pictures of the Hall winery...moreless
