You’re ready to try your hand at home brewing, but you want to try something unique—and you also have no idea where to start. This is the book for you. Broken into three sections—mead, cider, and herbal wine—you’ll learn what basic equipment you’ll need, what ingredients to have on hand, and author Nancy Koziol will walk you through each step of the process. Along the way, you’ll pick up some fun facts about ethical consumption, sustainable farming, and the science behind fermenting. Whether you want to try a simple honey mead, a crisp apple or pear cider, or a wild wine with herbs foraged from your backyard, in these pages you’ll find the inspiration and instruction you need to follow through to the finished product. Many of these drinks are brewed in a matter of weeks rather than months, so you don’t even have to be particularly patient! Once you get the hang of the basics, try experimenting with the suggested seasonal additions, or whatever fruit, herb, or spice is ready for harvest (or on sale at the local market). Add some ginger to your cider, some blackberries to your wine, or some pumpkin to your mead for brews that are truly your own. With a unique focus on local, seasonal produce and sustainable farming practices, this will appeal to seasoned brewers who are looking for something new as well as eco-conscious millennials ready to impress their friends on Instagram. Fascinating tidbits of trivia, information on health benefits, and a dash of humor make this book as entertaining as it is useful.

The third Sunday of November. The famous Hospices de Beaune is putting its wines up for sale. These cuvees, sold to the highest bidders throughout the afternoon, capture die attention of an entire profession and the passion of those who taste them. The world's oldest charity auction began working its magic in 1859. But the Hospices de Beaune is much more than a historical act of altruism. A new page in the chronicle of this unusual "winemaking hospital" is written each year, with each new vintage, and fascinates the entire world. Laurent Gotti reveals all the aspects of this extraordinary saga: its centuries of rich history, its vineyards, and its vignerons who, over time, allow the development of each vintage. He also carries us to the heart of the auction. Buyers came from all over the world: Japan, Germany, the United States... Many big names from show business, literature, and science have presided over the event... This auction also constitutes the first glimpse of the new vintage, the incontrovertible opportunity to gauge Burgundy, and we accompany the author on a trip through the arcane mysteries of its birth. Gotti's intimate knowledge of his subject allows us to learn in detail the history and provenance of each of these cuvees that have brought joy to the most exacting connoisseurs for so many years. The wines of the Hospices de Beaune are a gift from history to today's wine connoisseurs. This book is dedicated to them so that they may discover this formidable adventure, this striking testimony to the vivacity and generosity of the civilization of wine!

"Most books out there will show you the process, the ingredients you need and how it all works, but none of them show you how to make it just right. If you learn how to make a cheap $5 bottle of wine, you might as well just buy that and not spend your valuable time and effort, but what if you knew how to make that $100 bottle of wine, wouldn’t that be worth spending your time and energy on? Something you can share and enjoy with your friends and family? In this book, I show you just how to make it all perfect and how to eventually sell your wine and make some extra income. This book is divided into two parts, in the first part, I show you how to make wine at home, the whole process. Next, in the second part, I discuss how to start selling your wine and start a small business."--Amazon.com.

"Virginia Wine Country" describes [the Virginia] wineries; the founders and their philosophies, their vineyards, and the wines they produce. Not a taster's guide (judging the wines is left to the reader), the book is more than a tour of the regions of Virignia in which these wines are produced. In addition to descriptions of the wineries, the authors offer a sampling of inns and restaurants that serve these fine wines and (what is wine without the appropriate cuisine to accompany it?) more than one hundred forty favorite recipes of the restaurants and wineries themselves. -- From publisher's description.

Wine has been around for thousands of years, grape growing and wine production is worldwide, and recipes are prolific. However, this approach to winemaking root cause analysis is original and cannot be found in any other winemaking publications. The book start with the basics, with the authors' own basic winemaking steps. This provides a winemaking process and common language. With this understanding and departure point, they describe Root Cause Analysis (RCA) methods as applied to winemaking. Though winemaking appears to have simple steps, problems or flaws inevitably arise. Instant access to online materials can provide ad-hoc answers to given conditions; however, the applicability of these solutions to one’s own situation ad particular conditions is not always clear. Selective changes may or may not solve the problem and in the winemaking world, it may take years to finish the wine and understand if the quality actually improved or not. A finished wine will have thousands of particular current and historical conditions that played some role in its quality.The root cause analysis (RCA) approach provides a path to sort these out and guide winemakers to the solution. It creates a problem statement and systematically divides the world into six discrete groups. This book tackles each and all of these, one group at a time. The text contains examples that prioritize the contributing factors. Observations are noted, possibilities identified, and likelihoods assessed. Actions and tests are identified to aid in assigning risk, corrective action, and preventive measures. Given limited time and resources, prioritized risks and actions improve the chance of solving the problem. The book provides problems exploring each of their respective six group characteristics. Each RCA step is described and illustrated in detail. The process is revealed and explained through multiple examples. Feature 1: Organized systematic method for solving winemaking quality problems Feature 2: Applicable to amateur or commercial winemakers or any other product or system development activity and organization Feature 3: Unique new application to the wine making world but similar methods historically used in complex aerospace product development Feature 4: Teaching winemakers and producers how to think about uncertainty and error. It’s possible that gold medal wine, or 95-point Wine Spectator score, or 93-point Robert Parker score was deserved for that particular wine and vintage. But it is also possible you were very lucky. It may not be earned again in next year’s vintage. This book teaches approaches and methods to maintain and or improve the quality, every year. Feature 5: Application of a potentially 'dry' rigorous root cause analysis approach in a world that enables the joy of creating and appreciating something very enjoyable. It will help you smile, at least once a year.
