Most home winemaking books are written like cookbooks. They contain winemaking recipes and step bystep directions, but little technical information is included. The goal of these books is to provide enoughinformation so the reader can make a successful batch of wine. Enology textbooks are the other extreme.They are very technical and can be difficult to comprehend without a background in chemistry andmicrobiology. These books are intended to give professional winemakers the specialized backgroundsneeded to solve the wide variety of problems encountered in commercial wine production.This book is an attempt to provide beginning home winemakers with basic “how to” instructions as well asproviding an introduction to some of the more technical aspects of winemaking. However, the technicalmaterial has been concentrated in a few chapters, so readers can easily ignore much of the technical contentuntil an interest develops.If you have a quantity of fresh grapes to convert into wine, read Chapter 1 and the first few pages of Appendix A. This material will give you enough information to start a successful grape wine fermentation.Appendix A is written in a quasi outline form, and it provides a brief description of the entire winemakingprocess.If you have some fresh fruit and wish to make wine before the fruit spoils, read Chapter 21. This is a “standalone” chapter, and successful fruit wines can be made from the information provided here. The first fewpages provide enough information to prepare the fruit and start fermentation. The rest of the chapter canthen be read at your leisure.Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15 and 17 provide general information on home winemaking.These chapters discuss materials, facilities, equipment and basic processes. Much of this material is basicand should be of interest to most readers.The material presented in Chapters 5, 6, 11, 13 and 16 is a bit more advanced. These five chapters focusmostly on “what” and “why” rather than on “how.” Beginning winemakers may wish to skip these chaptersuntil they become more experienced.Chapters 18 and 19 are case studies of making a red and white wine. These two chapters provide adetailed chronology of the production of two typical wines.Chapter 20 describes hot to make small quantities of sparkling wine, and Chapter 22, contains practical“how to” information of general interest.Chapter 23 describes six common laboratory wine tests. The significance of the tests, materials, apparatusand procedures are discussed.I hope you enjoy my little book on home winemaking.Lum Eisenman
