This book is impressive from the moment you open it. Beautiful big full color photos and multiple illustration and diagrams. Written by professionals with many insightful details, examples and enthusiastic step by step instructions. After reading the first half- (The grape growing half) I believe I have enough information to select plants and grow a wonderful vineyard specific for my land and produce tons of fruit. The second half I may read later but I'm not very interested in producing wine. I'm sure it is just as detailed and informative . I believe this book is the one you must have if you are beginning or need to up grade you vineyard It appears to have plenty of information in a clear and easy to read format that would benefit the experienced farmers as well.

this is an excellent book for anyone starting a vinyard, (or taking one over)and is intended for the serious
home winemaker who's goal is to make a 'professional' style of wine. it has been a good reference for me every step of the way from designing the vinyard (my little half acre) growing the grapes, when to pick (in detail!) and how to make the wine, to aging and bottling.

I have a three year old jumble of vines that I just could not figure out how to prune correctly. This book does a great job of explaining pruning. Plenty of diagrams and explanations to assist the reader in making the needed cuts on precious vines. In this book the author, Jim Law, encourages the reader to allow the wine to develop as it will without chemical interference from the human. If you are looking for a recipe book, this is not the one for you. If you are looking for a book that will encourage and guide you in your long quest to become a comfortable vintner, then this is your book.
