Description

Wine connoisseurs, gardeners, and home winemakers will find the latest techniques and varieties discussed in the updated edition. With thorough, illustrated instructions, readers learn how to choose and prepare a vineyard site; construct sturdy and effective trellising systems; plant, prune, and harvest the right grapes for a particular climate; press, ferment, age, and bottle wine; and judge wine for clarity, colour, aroma, body, and taste. With this update, Jeff Cox also explains how to select and grow grapes so that home winemakers can create their own sparkling wine, ice wine, port-style wine, and dessert wine.
