Product Description

About the Author

Following his conversion from the elderberry to the grape thirty years ago, author Nick Poulter planted a commercial vineyard at Cranmore on the Isle of Wight and by 1984 it was producing 20,000 bottles a year from 30,000 plants. In those days there were only a dozen or so vineyards in England, but now that number has multiplied a hundredfold and the quality of English wine has constantly improved to become as good as any in the world.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book. I own three others, probably all from Amazon, and I think Growing Vines to make wines is the best. It deals with the specifics of growing vines in the U.K. and is very clearly written. It is also very detailed. Pros and Cons of each vine are described (grown in England), everything from planting a cutting to maturing a wine, is broken down into small steps with good illustrations and photos.

This book contains enough detailed advice to be useful, but not enough science to be overwhelming to the amateur. I can't recommend it enough! A great starting point for anyone thinking of growing their own vines in England with specific advice on our climate and what is achieveable. I'm a country wine maker and was glad for the detailed advice of how to take this one step further with grapes.

An excellent book for beginner and experienced grower/vintner. Lots of pictures and diagrams. lots of useful information of the whole process from preparing the ground to choosing and planting the vine, to care and harvesting the crop and making the wine. I would recommend this book to all who want to know how to grow your own wine!

The book is very informative about the whole process of making wine from grapes, however, it is definitely more suited to larger scale production of wine rather than home small wine production. The book contains some very useful information that will help me to understand the process of obtaining good wine, worth buying but I have ordered another book which hopefully will be more suitable for home wine making.
