This book is universally known as the 'winemaker's bible'. Over three million beginners have been happily launched into the fascinating hobby of winemaking by successive editions of this practical guide. This completely updated ninth edition sets out in metric, imperial and American measures some 150 detailed recipes, all arranged in the months best suited for their making so that winemaking can be pursued all year round. Wines from fruit, flowers, vegetables, foliage and kits are all dealt with, and for the more advanced winemaker there are notes on making wines in bulk, showing wine and judging. First published in 1960, and with over three million copies sold since then, this book is an inspiration to all beginners in winemaking.
