Commercial Winemaking : Processing and Controls by Richard P. Vine

By Richard P. Vine

The first actual winemaster could have been a cave guy who came upon the magic of fermentation by means of tasting the results of a few beaten grapes having been left inadvertently for a number of days. Wine will, actually, make itself.
