Winemaking: From Grape Growing to Marketplace

£12.99

Product description

During the past several decades considerable interest has developed in the United States for the wines that are produced in small wineries across our nation. This interest continues to intensify, especially for the truly good wines that are reasonably priced. Consumers are unforgiving. Second-class wines will not be acceptable just because a vintner may be newly established. The functions that must take place in the small estate-type wine cellar and the controls that can be realistically exercised by winemasters are essential in the creation of superior products. Although wine can be a comparatively simple food to produce, it is a very vast topic. Perhaps much the same as with other art forms, it is the infinite variability of factors at the root of the subject that renders it so complex. There are hundreds of different vine varieties cultivated around the world, and doubtlessly an even greater number of fruit and berry cultivars. Combined with such factors as soils, climates and mesoclimates (which may change with each vintage season), cultivation techniques, harvesting criteria, and overall operational philosophy, one can easily understand the enormous breadth and depth of variation which exists. This diversity generates a number of different wine possibilities that can only be conceived as something vastly exponential.

Pages are clean and bright, with some minor foxing to page edges. Shelf wear to cover.
