Wine Country Trucks Publishing is releasing this week its newest book, “Wine Country Trucks of Napa & Sonoma Counties” by Napa resident and photographer Lisa A. Harris. 

Over the past year, Harris photographed classic trucks from Napa and Sonoma counties, interviewed their owners and compiled a photographic and historic journal of her findings.  

Most of these vintage vehicles are iconic winery trucks, but there are diner mascots, wrecking yard relics and everything in between.  

Lively stories, scenic photos and winery trivia invite a larger audience than just classic car and truck enthusiasts. 

Some of the well known trucks featured from Napa are Bouchaine Vineyards, Laird Family Estate Winery, Reynolds Family Winery, Robinson Family Vineyards, V12 Vineyards and Regusci Winery

There are a total of sixty trucks and more than 150 photos in this "coffee table" book. 

One old classic entered the MBNA XV Great Race and traveled across the country using only back roads.  

Another was a moonshine runner, and others can testify to the agricultural roots of the region.  

The stories are as varied as the trucks, and will take you on a journey where none have gone before and is a refreshing addition to Wine Country “must-haves.”  

Harris' book will be offered at the Napa General Store, Napa Bookmine, Copperfield’s Books, numerous wineries from the book and on her website, www.winecountrytrucks.com.  

The first book signing will be at Laird Family Estate Winery on Saturday, May 3 from noon to 3 p.m.  

Other author signings will be throughout Napa and Sonoma counties in coming months and at the Father’s Day car show in Yountville.  

Follow Wine Country Trucks of Napa & Sonoma Counties here on Facebook for upcoming events.

The book will soon be available on the new Amazon/Sonoma website.

My husband and I are both excited to get our copy of Lisa's book: Wine Country Trucks of Napa and Sonoma Counties. We have been lucky enough to preview the book already and it is full of stunning photos and well written exposes of each of the trucks showcased. As Napa residents it is refreshing to see a book that not only captures wine country but adds a little zest with the sometimes refurbished, sometimes crusty, but always beautiful old trucks in the area. -Loretta and John
