Creating World Class Red Wine is dedicated to both wine lovers and winemakers, and was written to be enjoyable by both. Why does one bottle of wine retail for only $5.00 while another sells for $5000?
What techniques are used to grow top quality grapes and make the world’s best wines? The art and science of Enology is discussed in an easy to read format from the perspective of the professional winemaker, and is covered in enough detail to serve as an artistic guide for professional vintners as well as a definitive reference for amateurs.
Refined grape growing techniques, crushing regimens, yeast inoculation procedures, and fermentation protocols are discussed, followed by malolactic fermentation disciplines, barrel and amphora types, and cellaring processes. The focus is on quality. This work originates from a top-down study of how the finest wines in the world are actually made. Creating World Class Red Wine was written to be a standard practical winemaking reference for the 21st century.
