Growing Vines to Make Wines Summary

Growing Vines to Make Wines by Nick Poulter

This book is a fully updated amalgamation of two previously published titles - Growing Vines (1972) and Wines from your Vines (1974). It is concise, yet detailed, and covers all aspects from planting the vines through cropping and vinification to enjoying the final product. The quality of English wine is constantly improving and this book will help the amateur to produce high-quality wine from home-grown grapes providing the right varieties are used and the simple rules followed.

About Nick Poulter

Following his conversion from the elderberry to the grape thirty years ago, author Nick Poulter planted a commercial vineyard at Cranmore on the Isle of Wight and by 1984 it was producing 20,000 bottles a year from 30,000 plants. In those days there were only a dozen or so vineyards in England, but now that number has multiplied a hundredfold and the quality of English wine has constantly improved to become as good as any in the world.
