A practical and comprehensive guide to winemaking, wines, and wine appreciation, written by Philip Jackisch, an expert with many years of experience in the field.
"Jackisch explains the science behind wine and its application to winemaking. At the same time, he includes important material for commercial winemakers. Jackisch covers each step in the process of winemaking, from growing or purchasing grapes; choosing equipment; fermenting, aging, and storing the wine; to keeping records. By exploring in detail the various factors that affect wine quality, he shows which elements in wine production can be controlled to achieve certain sensory results." - Cornell University Press
