How do winemakers achieve the flavour, style, and quality of their wines? "The Art & Science of Wine" answers these questions in a series of studies detailing the processes behind winemaking.

Fully revised and updated to reflect the latest scientific developments, ideas, and techniques, the lively, informative text makes this a highly accessible read.
