(No reviews yet) Write a Review
This book is universally known as the 'winemaker's bible'. Over three million beginners have been happily launched into the fascinating hobby of winemaking by successive editions of this practical guide. This completely updated ninth edition sets out in metric, imperial and American measures some 150 detailed recipes, all arranged in the months best suited for their making so that winemaking can be pursued all year round. Wines from fruit, flowers, vegetables, foliage and kits are all dealt with, and for the more advanced winemaker there are notes on making wines in bulk, showing wine and judging. First published in 1960, and with over three million copies sold since then, this book is an inspiration to all beginners in winemaking.
AUTHOR: Cyril John James Berry was one of Britain's leading amateur winemakers, co-founder of the first Winemaker's Circle, founder Chairman of the National Association of Winemakers and Brewers and Editor-Publisher of the monthly magazine The Amateur Winemaker which he ran for 27 years. After World War II, when sugar came off rationing, Cyril co-founded the first Winemaker's Circle in Andover, which still flourishes today. Then Cheltenham, Bournemouth, Harrow and Hertford Circles sprang to life and gradually the bubbles of wine spread all over the UK. Clubs learnt about each others' events through a little magazine The Amateur Winemaker which Cyril and his wife Peggy produced in the upstairs bedroom of their house in Andover. This was for sale to Clubs at 6 pence a copy. Cyril had an ebullient personality and energy which not only embraced his family and social life but also gave him the courage at a mature age to give up his safe, professional life as Editor of a local Andover paper in order to concentrate on producing The Amateur Winemaker magazine on a national scale. He wrote several best-selling books on winemaking and home brewing, upon which he was an acknowledged expert for forty years, appearing frequently on television and always in demand as a lecturer and wine judge. He lived in Andover, Hampshire, England and in Malaga, Spain where he died in 2002.
