Book Description

14 Oct 2005 Mitchell Beazley Drink
This revolutionary book is the only indepth reference to detail the processes, developments, and factors affecting the science of winemaking. Jamie Goode, a highly recognized expert on the subject, skillfully opens up this complex subject and explains the background of the various processes involved and the range of issues surrounding their uses. He reports on the vital progress in winemaking research that has been made in the last decade and explains the practical application of science with reference to the range of winemaking techniques used around the world, as well as viticultural practices, organics and ecology, and lifestyle influences. Written in a uniquely accessible style, the book is divided into three sections covering the vineyard, the winery, and human interaction with wine. It also features over 100 illustrations and photographs to help make even the most complex topics clear, straightforward, and easy to understand.

5.0 out of 5 stars a note from the author 15 May 2013
Format:Hardcover
I'm the author of this book. Just a heads up: the US version, available and in print on amazon.com, is exactly the same book, and it's titled The science of wine.

I'm currently working on a revision of wine science, which will go to the publishers in may 2013 and be printed a few months later.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for all wine lovers 12 Jan 2006
By NickA
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
:
As a wine lover myself I find it difficult to imagine anyone with a true interest in wine won't find this book fascinating, enjoyable and provoking. It seems wine books like these come along rarely, but when they do they open up wine into such a broad, exciting and absorbing read, both helping people to get closer to understanding wine and their own experience with it.
With truly up-to-the-minute topics to cover things for the merely curious to would be winemaker and written in a style to make sure they remain accessible but not dumbed down; there is something for everyone.
The presentation and appearance is excellent, with snap shot sections to cover areas in a drop in style. Indeed, this is book you could read cover to cover, or dip in as curiosity bites you. There's some great photography, but being in B&W means one or two pictures could have been clearer. However, one plus side is the plastic Rosemount cork in amongst the real ones in the picture of traditional corks is well hidden!
I was surprised the ageing wine didn't have it's own section, although it crops up from time to time within other chapters. But any of this is simply looking for something to critique, and it's a book I truly recommend.
There's even a wine-science.com website to accompany the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Most updated book on the subject 19 Dec 2005
By Ulf Sjodin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The world of wine is changing fast, so books on wine science should be consumed while they are still fresh. This is a very new book dealing with the most important scientific issues today in a good way. It is interesting with lots of facts although I personally do not agree with all parts of the chapter on biodynamics. My only objection otherwise is that it only covers some parts of the vinegrowing/winemaking, making it a good read for those who already knows quite a lot but maybe not for the beginner.
