Writes Kuchar: "The goats, the chickens, the vineyards and the vinegar people all vie for prominence in this sun-drenched song to all that sizzles and marinates north of Marin and south of Shasta. An estate of ecstasy opens its gates for the gluttons of garbanzo and guacamole and the grapes are sour upon the vine." Kuchar's tour through California's Napa Valley includes a guest appearance by Francis Ford Coppola.
