Media reviews
The informative volume provides an up-to-date, clearly written and comprehensive account of wine science, and is therefore of value as an essential reference tool for students of enology and viticulture. It will also be of great value to grape growers, wine makers, and people interested in wine and its production. - CARBOHYDRATE POLYMERS (2005)
