Editorial Reviews

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
