About the Author
Eric Miller is the owner and winemaker at Chaddsford Winery in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. A lifelong oenophile, Miller learned his craft in France’s prestigious Burgundy region and apprenticed at his family’s Hudson Valley winery before hand-selecting his own terroir in southeastern Pennsylvania, where he founded Chaddsford Winery in 1982. His wines have been called “enchanting” and “perfect” by Gourmet, and have been featured in Food & Wine, the New York Times, and Philadelphia magazine. Eric has also been a leader in the development of premium viticulture in his home region, both as a board member of the Pennsylvania Commodities Council and past president and longtime board member of the Pennsylvania Association of Winegrowers.

If the reader has gone on a number of winery tours and been good about asking questions he/she will have acquired much of the information "The Vintners Apprentice" provides. In fact, having toured Chaddsford with Mr. Miller, I suspect the questions he commonly answers during such tours formed the foundation of this book.
If you're looking for an attractive, high level intro to how a vineyard/winery operates, you may enjoy this book. If you're looking for a guide to wine making, look elsewhere.
You get a clear picture of vine to glass. Cheers!
I read this book, thinking it might be similar, but it's not. It is really a salute to contemporary winemaking and winemakers around the globe. The information is general, and I found the interviews mildly interesting, but must admit that at my level I didn't learn much. I am always interested in what world class winemakers have to say.
Except for a couple out-of-focus images (that cool amphora-shaped concrete fermenter) the photography is gorgeous. Vintner's Apprentice is a nice coffee table book.
