What techniques are used to grow top quality grapes and make the world's best red wines? Winemaker Mark Stanley presents the art and science of Enology in an easy to read format from the perspective of the professional winemaker, covered in enough detail to serve as a practical reference for amateur grape growers and winemakers. Refined grape growing techniques, crushing regimens, yeast types, fermentation protocols, malolactic fermentation, oak barrels, and cellaring processes are discussed in depth. The focus is on quality. This work originates from a top-down study of how the finest red wines in the world are actually made, and was written to be the standard practical winemaking reference for the 21st century.
