About this book

Fully updated with new content and full-colour figures throughout, the second edition of this successful book reflects the impact of climate change and seasonal management, the expansion of production into new areas, and changing methods of grape production (including organic options). It includes information on wine grapes in addition to grapes for fresh consumption and raisin production. Covering a broad range of topics from grapevine growth and fruit development, to vineyard establishment, mechanisation and postharvest processing, this book provides historical and current information about the grape industry and sets out the theory and science behind production practices. It is an invaluable resource for grape producers, horticulture and plant science students, as well as enthusiasts of the vine and its products.

"Creasy and Creasy is the 'go to' reference on my bookshelf when I am searching for thoughts on current production systems. Given the authors' experience, there is good awareness of viticultural practices in different climate zones [...] I trust readers will find as much benefit and enjoyment with this updated volume as I found with the first."
– Dr. Richard Smart, 'the flying vine-doctor', Cornwall, UK
