Praise for the First Edition

"Winemaking these days is a complicated process that cannot always be understood intuitively. Fortunately Jamie Goode’sThe Science of Wine: From Vine to Glassexplains some of the terms that critics toss around. . . . Mr. Goode manages to make then lively and provocative.”#151;Eric Asimov,New York Times

A thoroughly revised and updated Second Edition of this essential and groundbreaking reference gives a comprehensive overview of one of the most fascinating, important, and controversial trends in the world of wine: the scientific and technological innovations that are now influencing how grapes are grown and how wine is made. Jamie Goode, a widely respected authority on wine science, details the key scientific developments relating to viticulture and enology, explains the practical application of science to techniques that are used around the world, and explores how these issues are affecting the quality, flavor, and perception of wine. The only complete and accessibly written resource available on the subject,The Science of Wine: From Vine to Glassengagingly discusses a wide range of topics including terroir, biodynamics, the production of "natural” or manipulation-free wines, the potential effect of climate change on grape growing, the health benefits of wine, and much more. A must-have reference for a wide audience of students, winemakers, wine professionals, and general readers interested in the science of wine.
