Winemaking Books Books the Amateur Winemaker should read and own. What’s in your Library?
I thought it would be a good idea to get in one blog post here at WestchesterWinemakers.com a listing and recommendation of books we think are valuable for Amateur Winemakers to read and have in their own personal libraries as Amateur Winemakers.
I have quite a few books and it is not my intention to list all of them at first but to start with a list for the new winemaker to read and have when first starting in the Hobby. As the conversation continues we can add books to the discussion which we feel have pertinent information or ones which provide a particular strength and those that are fun to read.
Techniques in Home Winemaking by Daniel Pambianchi is book that is more manual than text. It provides much needed information and charts and formula to assist the new winemaker. I think it is a must have.
Grapes into Wine by Philip M. Wagner is the “old Standard” a bit dated but still relevant in providing good yet simple explanations for processes and basic wine science. I have always liked this book as it was my first to own coming in the hobby.
Now for the beginner there are more which you may think are worthwhile. Please add your favorite Beginner Book in the Comments. Then we can move on to more advanced texts.
