This fourth edition presents the latest updates on current wine production methods in a framework that explains the use, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of alternate procedures. Ronald Jackson’s wealth of experience is matched by his ability to effectively communicate, making this book ideal for those seriously interested in the science of wine as well as professionals, professors and students.
