Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This entry in Quarry's new series designed to profile artisanal crafts from the viewpoints of experts in the field boasts a highly qualified author, nationally acclaimed East Coast winemaker Miller. Though the possibility of planting a vineyard or owning a winery may be out of reach for most readers, this guide serves as a comprehensive examination of the trade and will delight even the most stoic oenophiles. Miller begins with selecting a vineyard site and ends with laboratory analysis of the perfect bottle. Each chapter contains substantive interviews with well-known authorities, such as winegrower Gary Pisoni and winemaker Pauline Vauthier, that elevate this book above Thomas Pellechia's The Complete Idiot's Guide to Starting and Running a Winery. VERDICT The overall layout is artful and posh, making Miller's book also excellent for the coffee table. This high-quality guide will appeal to those with an interest in wine growing and wine making, culinary enthusiasts, and gardeners.—Carolyn M. Schwartz, Westfield State Univ. Lib., MA

Meet the Author

Eric Miller is the owner and winemaker at Chaddsford Winery in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. A lifelong oenophile, Miller learned his craft in France’s prestigious Burgundy region and apprenticed at his family’s Hudson Valley winery before hand-selecting his own terroir in southeastern Pennsylvania, where he founded Chaddsford Winery in 1982. His wines have been called “enchanting” and “perfect” by Gourmet, and have been featured in Food & Wine, the New York Times, and Philadelphia magazine. Eric has also been a leader in the development of premium viticulture in his home region, both as a board member of the Pennsylvania Commodities Council and past president and longtime board member of the Pennsylvania Association of Winegrowers.
