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.
