I am a beginner wine maker I started by checking out library books. Over the past 2 years this is the book I kept coming back to. The recipe section with step by step instructions and timelines. laid out on facing pages with icons that lead to more detailed instruction.

This book is a must for any beginner wine maker. It explains the process from start to finish, gives full definitions of terms, equipment, chemical reactions, problems you might have, different techniques for fermenting, etc. It is both detailed, and yet easy to understand and follow. I bought this book to guide me through my first batch of wine, and it was indispensible. The straight forward, easy to read instructions gave me confidence in their depth; I felt like the authors of this book really understood the process they are attempting to explain to a layman. There's a excellent selection of recipes including whole sections (10 recipes +) for: berry wines, hard fruit wines, soft fruit wines, tropical fruit wines, dried fruit wines, grape concentrate wines, fresh grape wines, champagne, and liqueur.

Additionally, the book comes spiral bound! Initially I didn't like this feature because I'd rather have a "real book", but I quickly understood how practical the binding was. It's easy to take notes in, to keep your page (just flip the cover around!), and to keep open while your working with your hands and referring to it. Even the paper is nice and thick (I was less afraid to spill on it).

For any person interested in wine, this book has great recipes and fantastic instruction.

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.

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.
