Here, for the first time, is a book that enlightens the wine lover on the hows and whys of the winemakers choices.Today, winemakers have at their disposal an unprecedented array of opportunities to influence the way their wine will taste: science and technology have granted them creative power undreamt of only twenty years ago.

Wine is no longer entirely the product of nature- it is a collaboration, and one in which the winemaker is becoming more and more the dominant partner.The winemakers choices begin in the vineyard with the selection of the grape variety and the way it will be farmed. In the winery, every step poses questions, from crushing the grapes to bottling the wine. The sum total of the decisions taken by the winemaker is the taste of the wine in our glass, and this book explains how this taste is achieved.Hugh Johnson and James Halliday explore this fast-moving new world, looking at the influence of tradition, the effects of modern technology, and the latest thinking of winemakers from every continent.For everyone for whom a glass of wine is worth a moments reflection, this is an essential book.

Beautiful, absorbing, and entertaining, The Vintners Art combines the best in wine writing with dramatic modern design, using graphics and superb photography.
