My best wine-making book.
on 23 September 2002
Let me use that old cliche, if you only buy one book on home wine-making then buy this one.
I have seven books on making wine. This is the one I always turn to first and the only one I have read cover to cover.
It is very readable, the only winemaking book I have with a sense of humour. It covers almost everything you could want. From the real basics, to really quite advanced stuff. It even has a potted history of winemaking.
But most of all the recipes never cease to turn out top notch wine, from bog-standard apple through unusual ones like kiwi to the use of herbs and spices.
Oh and don't be put off by the fact that it is of American origin. This usual puts me right off this kind of book. Not in this case though.
So what are you waiting for?
