Product Description


"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely recommended! 14 Jan. 2015
By JC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Wine Science by Ronald Jackson is an incredibly valuable book for any wine student or seriously geeky wine lover...

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...

Absolutely recommended!
4.0 out of 5 stars Good technical text 26 July 2016
By John B. Yale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Good text covering all aspects of grape growing and wine. Much detail and references provided. Recommended for the serious student, not those of casual interest.
5.0 out of 5 stars For the V&E crowd 16 Jan. 2016
By Mellissa W - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very informative. Much like a text book, so I hope you are not looking for an easy read for education on wine and grapes.

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.
5.0 out of 5 stars Not sure if it's any better than the 3rd edition 13 Feb. 2015
By Life is for living - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Required text for winemaking university class. Not sure if it's any better than the 3rd edition, but that was 5 years ago, and this is the current 2014 now version.
5.0 out of 5 stars For geeks and beginners 6 Jan. 2015
By Matti Kuukkanen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Thorough and in-depth. Also helpful for beginners (especially the section about world wine areas), but made for geeks!
