Editorial Reviews

Sunlight into Wine sets out the principles of canopy management to improve winegrape yield and quality. It brings together for the first time the findings of viticultural research and advances in commercial grapegrowing practice over the last decade or so. Emphasizing practical applications, there are sections to explain canopy microclimate, methods of vineyard quality assurance, and techniques to improve canopy microclimate which emphasize new trellis systems. The final section details how winegrape trellis systems can be economically constructed. The book is crammed with practical tips, and includes contributions from people around the world who are applying canopy management techniques, both in research and in commercial vineyards. There are plenty of illustrations and photographs to ensure that the concepts are easily understood...The techniques described here when adopted will lead to significant gains in vineyard yield and wine quality. This book is truly about 'winemaking in the vineyard'.

Despite being rather small and expensive, this book is an excellent reference for trellis and canopy management. This is one of the few texts that provides concrete examples and measurements for canopy management. Some of the management principles and charts are a bit time consuming to execute. For a small home vineyard it might be a bit overkill. The section on trellis systems has excellent diagrams, photographs and examples. The last section on trellis construction provides the necessary details to construct a system based on the principles discussed.

An excellent guide for evaluating canopy management in commercial vineyards, where production is paramount. Can be a bit difficult to read at times, but worth the effort.

As a novice vintner and wine maker I found this book very informative in trying to help me understand the grapevine. However in speaking with other more experienced viticulturists the book gives only one side of the story, the Smart side. So I add Mr Smarts opinions and facts to that great volume of knowledge and opinion of viticulture and keep learning
