I thought that I knew a fair bit about wine But after reading The Science of Wine From Vine to Glass I realized that I had been stumbling around for years with a lot of second hand and received wisdom, some of which it turns out was part myth and lore than fact This is just a marvelous book for wine lovers Admittedly, it is technical in many ways But the author writes with just the right balance of erudition, knowledge, science and example to explain plant biology and wine making science, history and procedures so succinctly that the basic concepts become readily understandable This is a wonderful book, and an invaluable resource for any wine lover wanting to know about how the wine in their glass got there and tastes the way it does. After years of drinking wine and reading periodicals I was looking for something that would help me separate the science from the hype Jamie Goode has concisely, cleanly, and intelligently touched on subjects from terroir to tasting with objectivity In the end he acknowledges the sum is greater than the parts, but understanding the parts helps us produce and drink and enjoy better wine.
