More About the Author

Jamie Goode obtained a PhD in plant biology and then worked for 15 years as a science editor. In 2000 he began wineanorak.com, and the following year started one of the very first wine blogs. In 2005 he published the first edition of The Science of Wine, and his second book, Authentic Wine (in collaboration with Sam Harrop) was published in 2011, and a revised version of The Science of Wine appeared in 2014.
Since 2005 Goode has been the wine columnist for UK national newspaper The Sunday Express. He also writes regularly for a range of publications, including the World of Fine Wine, Drinks International, Wines and Vines, Wine Business International, Wine and Spirits, and Sommelier Journal.
Goode presents on a wide range of topics, and is a widely travelled wine judge. He's a panel chair for the International Wine Challenge, and has recently judged competitions in Australia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Serbia, South Africa and the Loire. In 2006 he won the Glenfiddich Award for wine book of the year, and the following year the same award for winewriter of the year. In 2012 and 2014 his blog won best overall wine blog in the Wine Bloggers Awards (USA), and in 2012 he was blogger of the year for the International Wine and Spirits Competition.

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.

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.

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.
