1-12: Wine history and trivia facts about wine followed by a few paragraphs about the health benefits of wine. The health benefits section is of dubious factual data at best. Apparently severe sunburn may be prevented with the intake of wines and grapes. This seems to be based on a single academic study from 2011 (The author didn't cite it or anything I googled it). Page 2, 6, 10 and 12 are blank.
13-24: High level facts about the wine making process followed by a list of wine vocabulary for about 8 pages Literally just a list of terms with definitions. The author helpfully adds a definition of the term 'Sweet'. He eloquently describes it as "Sweet is one of the 4 basic flavors". Page 16 and 24 are blank.
25-25: Wine tasting. There is a section on how to open wine which is a riveting two full paragraphs.
27-32: Benefits of making wine and common misconceptions (Make sure to not drink wine if you are allergic to it and don't sell wine you make to children) Page 32 is blank.
33-34: Descriptions of different kinds of grapes. Literally a list of types of grapes followed by a definition.
35-37: List of tools used for wine making. (We haven't learned how to actually make wine - the suspense is killing me).
There are no specific product recommendations a Carboy is described in the following way: "A large glass jar with a neck. For only a couple dollars more, you could get a 1 gallon carboy with an airlock, which you will need. The choice basically is to buy it together or separately."
39 - 41: Sanitization (Make sure things are clean) Page 42 is Blank.
43-46: How to make wine in 12 simple steps with one recipe included.
47: Common mistakes. Page 48 is blank.
50: Blank - I assume page 50 was added so the author could meet some kind of arbitrary page requirement.
Later in the book, Richards describes the benefits of making wine, and then delves right into the process itself, providing in-depth instruction about each step, from what equipment to buy to what grapes to use to common mistakes made by total novices. After reading this book, I'm psyched to try this new hobby!
I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in making wine, or even just learning more about wine. It's an awesome reference that you will come back to time after time.
