Written by one of the country's leading enologists, Winemaking Basics explains in easily understandable language the fundamental processes of making table wines. The author discusses the conditions, equipment, and basic materials used to make table wine. Handy as a step-by-step guide or a general reference, this practical book explores the crucial aspects of :

The bibliography covers most of the current texts that should be of interest to the winemaker. Although not heavily referenced, this informative guide mentions a few key books and articles for the reader who wishes to pursue the science aspects more deeply.
