Media reviews

"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
