I bought this book after it was recommended to me as THE authority on the "Two Wine Theory" - I almost feel that I wasted my money, but at least I have documented proof that the "Two Wine Theory" is completely absurd (which is THE ONLY REASON I give it 2 stars).

Much of the material for this book (originally published in 1874) came from two articles (Bacchus and Anti-Bacchus) which were thoroughly refuted in 1841 by John McLean in the April and October issues of the Princeton Review.

This book begins with false "facts" about fermentation, which are then used as a basis for "proving" that much of what was called wine 2,000 years ago could not possibly have been fermented. The book describes several ancient processes for preventing fermentation. But John McLean clearly documented that they are actually methods of improving fermentation. The truth about fermentation can be found easily by researching fermentation, or even winemaking, in a local library, encyclopedia, or internet search engine.

The book also makes claims about the Hebrew and Greek words for wine and "strong drink" (that they are only alcoholic when they are "bad"). As I mentioned above, Rev. John McLean showed from Pliny, Aristotle, Columella, and others from the time of Christ and earlier, that these claims are false.

If you're really interested in the subject, enter "Two Wine Theory" (including the quotes) into a search engine and start reading. :-)

This book has a subtitle about the "laws of fermentation" about which I teach and cook. Well, this little gem has nothing to do with how to make wines like they did in the Bible, it is a 90-some page, one man rant about the lies and the supposed twists that make wine OK in the Bible, but Mr. Patton as decided they meant "juice" and that wine is BAD. Urgh!

I make rustic wines, as little modern chemical help as possible, I was looking for some old fermentation guidance. This is not it.

AND it was so old the first time I opened it the binding came undone and every page fell out. So much for a return.

I have purchased many books online, this is the only one I have been disappointed in.
