Most wine lovers just drink wine and don't have to understand how wine is made, as for driving a car, you don't need to know the technology behind it. But if you are interested in the why and how of certain aspects of wines and wine tasting, this book gives you a valuable insight in the world of wine making. All explanations are clear and kept simple, you do not need to be a chemist to understand. The 3rd edition has been brought up to date, as the wine technology is improving all the time. The chapters on Quality Control and Quality Assurance are excellent and to the point, these subjects are more in my own field of expertise. Recommended for all who want to know some more about wine and wine making.

I'm thinking of starting a meadery, so I bought this book to get an idea about the types of equipment I might need. I found it to be very informative without being too technical. It was an enjoyable read.

Excellent book. Perfect balance of chemistry and theory with a relaxed, interesting and chatty writing style. Would recommend to anyone wishing to augment theory with general oenology.

An excellent work which explains in great detail the science of wine making and the decisions made by the winemaker which will affect the final product. It also shows that we now enjoy higher quality wines than ever before.
