Product Details


Product Description

From Library Journal

This is an update of The Art of Making Wine by Anderson with Raymond Hull ( LJ 12/15/71). The book includes an introduction to the basic principles; recipes; a reference section with a table of problems and their solutions; a glossary; and a buyer's guide. The recipes are clearly written, with symbols used to designate the different steps. There is a complete variety of wine recipes, using berries, soft fruits, hard fruits, tropical fruits, dried fruits and, of course, fresh grapes. Some recipes are ambitious--one requires 90 pounds of Thompson Seedless table grapes, and the authors warn that a champagne recipe requires a great deal of dedication, practice, and technique. Nevertheless, this is an excellent source for the serious home winemaker.

I'd like to clarify by suggesting 4 stars for a beginner interested in beginning home winemaking and 3 stars for an amateur home winemaker. Regarding beginners interested in winemaking, this is a good starter book with explanations for the ingredients you're using without too much science getting in the way. I feel that this book should be used in conjunction with other books (perhaps Joy of Home Winemaking) to give potential hobbyists a better feel for winemaking. There are numerous recipes for fruits, berries, vinifera & hybrid grapes, and straight concentrates. The reservations I hold against the book is that I suspect it was written more for the west coast hobbyist with better access to some ingredients (ie. certain grape concentrates, brands of yeasts and acids), but that shouldn't prevent anyone from producing wine with this book. (3 stars) Amateurs already familiar with a couple of batches should find this a useful reference because of the variety of recipes and equipement techniques & usage.

You should know right up front that I am one of those individuals that with every visit to the California wine country orders an application from the UC Davis School of Enology (winemaking). But, my departure from the heady Napa or Sonoma valley air usually brings reality back to bare upon me and I am relegated to merely enjoying the bottles I bought. Well, such disappointment is no longer necessary with this spectacular book on do-it-yourself winemaking. The Andersons begin by assuring the prospective alchemist that he or she does not need a sprawling vineyard after all; just a few (ten to be exact) kitchen-grade items and, where applicable, your spouse's indulgence. The recepies read with the ease of a Betty Crocker cookbook and the tantalizing descriptions of the finished products had me conjuring up images of breaking out my holiday bottle of Blackberry Port or a summer Chardonnay. Whatever your poison, the recipies are there as well as the Anderson's assurance that home winemaking need'nt require a total lifestyle change. You may have to read the recipie a couple of times to get it straight but what a small price to pay for your own vintage!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great 'recipe book' for beginning winemakers Jan. 29 2001
Format:Plastic Comb
Some books are meant to be read, and others are meant to be used. This one definitely falls into the second category. Spiral bound, this falls neatly open to whichever wine recipe you are currently working on. There are recipes for apricot wine, kiwi fruit wine, ruby port, sparkling wine, and everything in between.
There are also photos and descriptions of winemaking equipment, explanations of how to fortify wine, troubleshooting techniques, and much more.
True, not all ingredients are readily available everywhere. Many recipes require trial and error before they become perfect for your palate. That's the same for any recipe, though. Find out what raw materials you have available, open the book to the recipes which match your fruits, and have at it. You'll find that using this book as a springboard, you'll soon be amazing your friends and pleasing your palate with a product made right in your own basement.

5.0 out of 5 stars New to Winemaking? So am I. Feb. 19 2001
Format:Plastic Comb
A friend over seas, living in a country where one must make their own, recommended this gem to me last year. Since then, although possessed of no previous knowledge or experience, I succeeded rather easily in making good wines. I also compared the wine from the recipes in Anderson book with highly recommended kits from Vino Del Vida. Although much easier and quicker, the kit product, while very satisfactory according to those who have tasted it, did not measure up to the superior wine made from Anderson's recipes.
Practical suggestions for equipment, where to purchase it and techniques are explained in a straightforward fashion. With a relative small cash outlay and this book, you can be well on your way to an interesting hobby.
