Product Description


"[T}he effort to keep any substantial reference work up to date is a never-ending job. I was recently discussing this very topic with Ron Jackson, author of Wine Science - Principles and Applications, whose 4th edition is due out in 2014.. Thank goodness he loves his job because Wine Science is, as far as I am concerned, the best single volume work on the subject and I urge any sommelier who does not already own a copy to buy one. It offers the same depth of knowledge as the equally excellent two-volume Handbook of Enology by Ribereau-Gayon et al, but Wine Science covers a wider range of subjects (including wine law, wine assessment, wine and health, and more), the Contents for which lay readers in particular will find more intuitively named and more logically ordered, yet the degree to which he tackles his subject is second to none. If anyone thinks my job is difficult, then Ron's must be close to impossible. " --Tom Stevenson on Guild of Sommeliers

Really in depth explanation of the science behind the wines. Not having much of a chemical background it stretches me, but the fluent writing style really helps. If you buy one book on wine science, then this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough, concise, and readable 22 Aug 2010
By Jim Teague - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'd recommend this book as a reference for anyone, and wouldn't be surprised if it appears on the shelves of experienced professionals. It's not something you'd want to use as a guide to making wine, but would certainly be a great resource for more deeply understanding the process, as well as for troubleshooting problems or investigating alternative approaches.

1.0 out of 5 stars Missing Pages 303-334 23 Jan 2014
By Julie M. Smith - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book last fall but did not start using it for classes till Spring.

While doing an assignment I realized the book is missing pages 303-334 and contains duplicate pages of 335-366.

Amazon says it is past the return window. I just want a complete book.

Double check your contents because I am sure this is not the only book in this condition.
