Wine Science

The Application of Science in Winemaking

By Jamie Goode

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A new edition of the 2006 Glenfiddich Drinks Book of the Year - a groundbreaking book that clearly details all the key scientific developments in wine and winemaking.

This revolutionary book is the only indepth reference to detail the processes, developments, and factors affecting the science of winemaking.

Jamie Goode, a highly regarded expert on the subject, skilfully opens up this complex subject and explains the background to the various processes involved and the range of issues surrounding their uses. He reports on the vital progress in winemaking research that has been made in the last decade and explains the practical application of science with reference to the range of winemaking techniques used around the world, as well as viticultural practices, organics and ecology, and lifestyle influences.

Written in a uniquely accessible style, the book is divided into three sections covering the vineyard, the winery and human interaction with wine. It also features over 80 illustrations and photographs to help make even the most complex topics clear, straightforward and easy to understand.

Annabel Rivkin, Emilie McMeekan

Feel that middle-age is a label that doesn't fit? Welcome to Midulthood, a generation-defining tribe where we are not our mothers. 'Midulthood is a mood. A movement. A place where Midult women matter. Where anxiety becomes if not fun then funny. Can't face having sex with your husband? Worried you're going to lose your house? Deranged about fertility? Feel like you're employed by your life? Come on in... the water's lovely.'She Did It Anyway offers a wry, funny guide for women of 35- 55 who don't feel middle-aged, with chapters covering topics such as Dating (It's Not Me, It's You), Sex (What Could Possibly Go Wrong?), Joy (I am Flawsome), Work (Know Your Worth, then Add VAT), Friendship (Wishbone, Backbone, Funnybone) and Self-image (Does This Straitjacket Make Me Look Fat?). Topics are explored through essays, listicles ('Thoughts We Have at 6am, 8 Little Life Enhancers (we are not going to do)) and quotes ('I just want to lie in a pile of warm laundry and eat bread' and 'The best cure for a hangover is being under the age of 25').After reading this book, Midults will no longer feel like civilization's ignored middle child, but happier, stronger and better prepared. Remember: Life is tough. So are you.
