"This is my bible because nobody gets close to Jackson in broadening the science of wine without diluting it, extending this vast and diverse subject back to the origin of vines and forward to wine laws, geographic origin, terroir, sensory perception and health issues." --Tom Stevenson
About the Author
Ron Jackson received the bachelor's and master's degree from Queen's University and the doctrine from the University of Toronto. His time in Vineland, Ontario, and subsequently at Cornell University redirected his interest in plant disease toward viticulture and enology. As part of his regular teaching duries at Brandon University, he developed the first wine technology course in Canada. For many years he was a technical advisor to the Manitoba Liquor Control Commission, developed sensory tests to assess the tasting skills of members of its Sensory Panel, and was a member of its External Tasting Panel. He is also the author of Conserve Water, Drink Wine and several technical reviews. Dr. Jackson has resigned from his position as a professor and the chair of the Botany Department at Brandon University to concentrate on writing. He is allied with the Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute, Brock University.

In it, thorough explanations of viticulture & winemaking principles and relations to the style & quality we can expect in wine influenced by those techniques. Jackson demystifies a whole series of concepts that are so misunderstood today in the wine world, even by so-called wine experts. Putting many principles in their proper perspective, they become alive & wine making become a thing of beauty...
The organization of the subjects is very logical with the beginning of crops to the end of wine and regions.
I am a V&E student in college and I can greatly appreciate this book.
