Book Review

Jeff Cox and Sarah M. Clarkson's
From Vines to Wines

Whether planting one vine or one thousand, read this book!

Jeff Cox, Sarah M. Clarkson. From Vines to Wines.
Published by Storey Communications, Inc., Pownal, Vermont, 1989.

(Reviewed for Amazon.com by Jack Keller, The Winemaking Home Page)

Jeff Cox does what so few writers can do; he makes viticulture so interesting that you won't want to put this book down. That's saying a lot!

The whole book is a masterful handbook for the home or small commercial grower. From selecting the vines and a growing site to planting, growing, pruning, and harvesting to making wine, Cox literally packs the pages with useful information, tables and how-to illustrations. Even his appendix on grapes pests and their control is written as a trouble-shooting guide based on symptoms rather than cause. This is both refreshing and useful.

If you can only buy one book on the subject, this is the one to buy.
