About the Author


Robert White has had an outstanding international career in soil, water and nutrient management for more than 40 years. After working for many years in broad-acre agriculture, he turned his attention to the fascinating interaction between soil and the flavor and aromas of wines world-wide, a topic that happily marries sensory pleasure with science.

27 of 28 people found the following review helpful By Michael A. Duvernois TOP 1000 REVIEWER on January 16, 2010
Format: Hardcover
The old standard text was Soils for Fine Wines but this is quite a nice book. Fully up to date on the literal aspects of terroir, the soil beneath the grape vines. Robert White has written extensively on soil science and this book hits on both soil science basics (always in relation to wine grape growing though) and specific vineyard soil issues including climate change, organic viticulture, and sustainability. Modern land management techniques are also discussed, digital soil mapping and remote sensing for example. Good as a text for viticultural studies.

This book is a rare jewel: very well structured, to the point (206 pages of pure information, no conceptual wandering), thorough (no skimming over subjects). That said, this book is for viticultural soil scientists, budding viticulturists or wine making professionals.

An authoratitive reference on vinyard soils with good examples from around the world. The prodcution format of the book however could be much better, with illustrations on the same page as the reference and better quality photography.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you are studying wine this is a good book not for the layman seeking general information. But because I am studying for my WSET Diploma, this book helped me understand the soils grapes like to grow on. Can get a bit technical. Price for this type of book is correct. Shipped and arrived on time. Thanks again Amazon.

This book is informative would be more useful if pictures were in color on some soil displayed. But very technical and may be handy in the future.
