Postmodern Winemaking: Rethinking the Modern Science of an Ancient Craft

by Clark Smith

University Of California Press | November 2, 2013 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Postmodern Winemaking: Rethinking the Modern Science of an Ancient Craft is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
In Postmodern Winemaking, Clark Smith shares the extensive knowledge he has accumulated in engaging, humorous, and erudite essays that convey a new vision of the winemaker's craft--one that credits the crucial roles played by both science and art in the winemaking process. Smith, a leading innovator in red wine production techniques, explains how traditional enological education has led many winemakers astray--enabling them to create competent, consistent wines while putting exceptional wines of structure and mystery beyond their grasp. Great wines, he claims, demand a personal and creative engagement with many elements of the process. His lively exploration of the facets of postmodern winemaking, together with profiles of some of its practitioners, is both entertaining and enlightening.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Refreshingly new perspective! This book delivers just what it purports to and is an enjoyable read by a knowledgeable individual. It covers aspects of the wine industry that I was not familiar with as a Certified Sommelier who travels and vists vineyards and runs food and wine tasting events.
