Publisher Comments:

Written by a vintner and science editor with twenty-five years experience, The Way to Make Wine is the most readable and reliable handbook among the many winemaking guides.

Warrick demystifies winemaking by explaining the nuts and bolts and demonstrating that if readers can replace a faucet washer or cook a pasta sauce, they can make food-friendly wines that cost less than the bottles theyand#8217;re now opening. He enables amateur vintners to equip a home winery, procure top-quality grapes, run a flawless fermentation, and enjoy their wineand#151;its nose, its body, and finishand#151;with renewed awareness and appreciation. At the same time, the author points experienced home vintners to new skills, describing top wineriesand#8217; techniques. Rich with insidersand#8217; know-how, this book also divulges the many advances that have been made in the past few decades and makes clear that, with enologistsand#8217; innovations, home winemaking is easier than ever. With straightforward illustrations of key steps, this book offers one-stop shopping for anyone whoand#8217;s ever dreamed of making table wines at home.

Synopsis:

"An essential reference that takes you step-by-step through techniques used by professionals to create quality small-lot wines. A book like this would have been a huge help for me when I first started making wine! Both easy to read and serious enough so that the reader doesn't feel talked down to as an amateur, The Way to Make Wine is a much needed guide to the basics of modern winemaking."and#151;Michael Dashe, owner and winemaker, Dashe Cellars

"This book is a terrific resource. Warrick clearly knows his stuff and conveys the sometimes technical information in a truly palatable manner."and#151;Lynn Alley, frequent contributor to Wine Spectator and author of Lost Arts: A Celebration of Culinary Tradition
