    My wife and I both read this book, and we were amazed to see the quality of the writing and depth of the story. We enjoyed it more that many paperback books we recently bought. Good work Eric! How about a sequel?

    I've never made wine, but always thought I'd like to try. If I do, I'll use this book. It's straight forward yet detailed enough that I think I could. And the recipes cover every kind from corn to dandelion. (And grape too.) Even if you are like me and have only a passing interest in making wine, this book is worth a read. You might start collecting bottles. :)
