Great for a seasoned Winemaker I really want to give this a better review but alas, I cannot. I enjoyed the book, but the breakdowns were overly complex. If you are just getting started this is going to be a hard read for you with all of the scientifical information flying at you at once. I was hoping for a dumbed down (literally, for dummies) version of every single winemakers guide I picked but instead got another techosavvy one full of mystery and confusion like the rest. My head spun with the extravagant setups and procedures.If you know and understand the principals of what you are doing it’s a great book. If you have done it before and want MORE out of what you are doing it’s great as well. If you are a beginner and want a step by step guide on how to make wine? Ask a friend who makes it. That has been the only clear cut answer I have ever gotten. This is more like a science book vs. an instruction manual (for dummies).

An immediate classic I owned one of the first copies of this book and have nothing but respect for the great (and now, sadly, late) Tim Patterson.Tim made fine wines – mostly forceful reds, never merlot, plenty of zinfandels, pinot noir only when the grapes were at their peak, and an occasional rose, chenin blanc, or sparkling white – from 1997 to 2013. After the first few years, every bottle of his wine was spoken for by the time it was bottled, and I certainly bought three or four cases a year. The wine was sometimes startling but never disappointing.I have read this book from cover to cover and am convinced that it will tell the serious amateur winemaker everything s/he needs to know. If you are considering producing your own wine, whether for home consumption or sale, this book should be your first investment.
