Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A reprint of the Harper edition of 1985. Practical advice for the amateur. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher

“Cox has a lively prose style that keeps this guide for grape growers and home vintners from ever becoming dull or pompous. Whether you plan to grow or make your own wine or just want to understand what you’re seeing when you visit a winery of vineyard, this book will prove invaluable.”

— San Francisco Examiner

“Read a book or two on the basics of home winemaking — Jeff Cox’s From Vines to Wines is a good one.”

— Wine Spectator

“This book takes the reader from grape to glass . . . easy-to-use lists, tables and drawings will inspire confidence in readers who are interested in making their own wines.”

— Orlando Sentinel

“ ‘Complete’ aptly describes the tables, glossary, illustrations, and readable text. “

— Country Journal

“an intelligent handbook on how to make good wine. Without getting into the details of hard science, it teaches, informs and excites.”

— Beverage Business

    ....and my first vintage is better than expected!

    This book will help you get from Vines to Wines, just as the title states. You can also focus on just the areas that you are interested in. I've make excellent red wine with this book. The pages are all curled up and the book is bent and used, and the wine is very good. My other titles sit nicely on the shelf, unused. Thanks, Jeff, for walking me through what my Great Grandfather is no longer here to do.
