This is a handbook resulting from more than 30 years experience of vine growing. It is a very practical guide for selecting varieties for the table, for wine and for decoration. 

It describes logical routes to successful viticulture and viniculture whether outdoors, indoors on walls or in pots. More than 100 varieties are described and assessed for their suitability for home-growing including newer low and no-spray hybrids, which are suitable for organic culture. 

There are chapters on husbandry, preparing and keeping grapes for the table, the making of still and sparkling wines, juicing, verjuice and vinegar making. This, the 3rd edition, is completely updated and includes experience with seedless varieties of which 14 are described and assessed. Well illustrated with 52 colour photographs and many line drawings, this book is a comprehensive guide for anyone wishing to grow grapes or...simply to learn more about them.
