 This book describes 92 of the most popular wine grape varieties currently used by wine makers around the world plus some that may have a place in the future.

It builds on the earlier edition of Wine Grape Varieties of Australia, by including new varieties of grape and updating critical information.

The book enables readers to easily identify a particular variety using lavish colour photographs of the leaves, shoots, canes and fruit. Each grape variety is further described with a brief history, its current world plantings and the wines, including blends, that are manufactured from it.

 

 
  • High quality colour photographs
  • Brief, easily read descriptions
  • Lists grape names and synonyms used in Australia and overseas
  • Glossary of technical terms
  • Identifies cultivars that have been DNA-profiled
 

 Back in print due to an ongoing demand, professional and amateur viticulturists, as well as wine lovers, will find this book a useful and attractive resource. 

 "Kerridge and Antcliff's small book, based on the earlier Wine Grape Varieties of Australia (1996), should be in the possession of everyone interested in wine grapes and wine production, or who simply loves wine. . .The timing of this book is excellent. . .This book has all of these and dozens more with beautiful color plates and a brief history of geographic origin and usage. . .This book is a gem. All levels."
G.S. Howell, Michigan State University (CHOICE v.37 no. 5 January 2000)
