Format: Paperback
Parker Covington has unraveled the mysteries of making wine at home for me. The chapters are well organized and the book is written in easy-to understand language that makes the basics of every aspect of making wine at home seem doable. The glossary at the end of the book is also really helpful for understanding the language of wine-making, and I keep referring to it. This book has given me confidence to jump into this hobby and I've ordered my first kit.

In my view this book is not about how to make wine. Instead, it delves more into what you need to do to make wine, such as using fresh grapes versus buying a concentrate (the decisions you need to make), the equipment you will need, and that you shouldn't let your mistakes stop you from trying again. If you are looking for a book that introduces you to the terms used in wine making, this book does that. If you are looking for a book that walks you through the process step-by-step - this is not the book for you. Think of this book as more of a set of directions to the local shopping mall, not how to drive the car.

I also found the book to be a bit repetitive. I lost count of how my times the author mentioned that you will find making your own wine very rewarding. I got the impression that the author was just trying to make the book longer. It doesn't take very long to read the entire book - perhaps a couple of hours. That should tell you that the book doesn't go into very much depth. I don't expect I'll even go back to the book as a reference. Overall I was quite disappointed with the book and have since gone to my local library to pick up a step-by-step guide.

Format: Paperback
I've been wanting to try wine making at home for many years, but whenever I look at the how-to books they are so complicated and detailed that I've been deterred every time and just stuck with my arts and crafts instead. This book changed my mind and I'm setting up space to start my first wine! When the cover of this book caught my eye, I said, "What the heck I'll check it out." The book is actually a very clear, easy read that includes wonderful wine quotes at the beginning of each chapter. It also gave a bit of history of wine making that was quite interesting. The chapter about making wine from fruit was my favorite, and the strawberry wine recipe the author included in that chapter will be the first wine from fruit that I'll try. The author covered quite a bit of information without making the hobby seem daunting, and included a good glossary of wine-making terminology. I recommend the book for people like me, who are beginners, or who are simply interested in getting an understandable overview of everything that wine making at home involves.
