Such a great book about everything a new home winemaker needs to know. I am intrigued by winemaking, but I have never attempted to try it myself. Not sure I am ready yet, but this book triggered something in me, so maybe one day... For me the biggest challenge is getting the grapes, but at least now I know the process when it comes to winemaking, and everything I would need to buy and do before, during, and after. A really great companion if you are about to start your journey! Good layout, clear sections, easy to read and understand, as well as great pictures.

*** Thank you to NetGalley, Quarto Publishing Group and Harvard Common Press for providing access to this book in exchange for an honest review ***

I am not sure what I was expecting when I picked up this title. Before this book, I had no experience dealing with the process of making wine. I only drink wine casually as well. It was shocking to learn how technical the wine making process is. This is definitely not a hobby you can just pick up on a whim and enjoy casually. This is more like a science where it requires attention and dedication to put out the type of flavor you're looking for.

This is great knowledge to have, and I appreciated the reading experience. I would definitely recommend this to anyone truly interested in dedicating time and attention to detail in making their own wine at home.
