Product Description

Synopsis

This is a handbook resulting from more than 30 years experience of vine growing. It is a very practical guide for selecting varieties for the table, for wine and for decoration. It describes logical routes to successful viticulture and viniculture whether outdoors, indoors on walls or in pots. More than 100 varieties are described and assessed for their suitability for home-growing including newer low and no-spray hybrids, which are suitable for organic culture. There are chapters on husbandry, preparing and keeping grapes for the table, the making of still and sparkling wines, juicing, verjuice and vinegar making. This, the 3rd edition, is completely updated and includes experience with seedless varieties of which 14 are described and assessed. Well illustrated with 52 colour photographs and many line drawings, this book is a comprehensive guide for anyone wishing to grow grapes or...simply to learn more about them.

Format: Paperback
This is a very useful book, packed with practical tips on grape growing as well as some fascinating background information on grape varieties & history. The author clearly knows his subject and the book is easy to read. If you're interested in knowing about grapes, then this is the book for you.

I've bought two copies - one for my bookshelf and another to keep in the garden shed!

Very poor quality printing, clearly 'self published'. Most unattractive book, pamphlet quality. Did not keep it on my shelf, took it to local charity shop!
