For your first batch of wine all you need is this 49-page book, a new or recycled gallon or 4L wine jug, sugar or honey, and seasonal fruit. Also a bung and airlock, and a recommended Campden tablet (all available on Amazon). If you buy wine for drinking or cooking, I suggest a 4L jug of C Rossi Burgandy or Merlot for about $14 at your WMart discount store. Either drink it of freeze it in Ice cube trays (then keep in freezer bags) for Beef Burgandy or sautéed mushrooms. BTW, the #6 bung fits the CRossi jug. A tip, rinse out wine bottles and jugs immediately. Store them upside down to keep insects and dust out with a bit of crumpled paper stuffed in opening. This makes it so much easier for reuse.
Very concise history, definitions and wine making techniques, stressing the sanitization process. I used to make beer so can relate to this. I have several wine making friends also, and this demystifies some of what they do, though I do try to be part of the process whenever possible to get a real feel. For the home winemaker, this is an invaluable guide. Author of a practical guide to living in Baja Norte… My Gold Coast—Baja: A Practical Guide
This book was helpful being a total novice winemaker. It listed a quick review of the main variety of grapes from which wine is made. To some it may seem redundant they keep talking about sanitizing the equipment, but they want you to have a pleasant and rewarding experience. I would recommend this book to anyone thinking about making their own wine.
