Summary "Here for the first time is a book that enlightens us on the 'how' and 'why' of the winemaker's options. These begin in the vineyard, with the selection of the grape variety and the way it is farmed. In the winery, every step from crushing to bottling poses questions. The sum total of the decisions taken by the winemaker is the taste of the wine in our glass, and this book explains how this taste is achieved."--BOOK JACKET
