The Wine Drinker's Guide to the Vineyard by David Jackson

Paperback, 2004, 141pages, very good condition

What makes a superior grape? The aim of this book is to provide the serious wine aficionado with the information needed to appreciate the contribution of the particular features of the vineyard to wine quality. The topics covered range from discovering our taste buds and the aroma of wines, to grape varieties and clones, an explanation of soils, climate, terroir, light, pests and diseases, pruning and training, and the human influences on viticulture. Included are chapters on six men who have had a considerable influence on the development of the wine industries in their various countries and internationally: Stephen Skelton in England, Richard Smart and Peter Dry in Australia, Andrew Reynolds in Canada, Glen Creasy in New Zealand, and Danny Schuster in the United States and Europe. David Jackson examines their enduring commitment and their individual contributions to this alluring and challenging industry.
