"Wine lovers who dream of planting vines at home, whether they have room for one acre or a single row, will find valuable advice." -- Wine Spectator

Interest in wine shows no signs of slowing down--wine tours, tastings, and vacations are now common and homeowners often have space dedicated to their collection. The logical next step? Learning to grow and make your own.

In The Organic Backyard Vineyard , expert Tom Powers walks the small grower through the entire process of growing grapes, with a month-by-month maintenance guide covering all regions of the U.S. and Canada. He explains everything a beginning grape grower needs to know: how to design and build a vineyard, how to select grapes for each region, how to maximize yield using organic maintenance techniques, how to build a trellis, how to harvest at peak flavor, and how to store grapes for wine making.

Great book for starting a backyard vineyard or for someone who wants to regain control of a small vineyard. I followed the pruning tips in this book and got great results, harvesting a lot of grapes. It's a good quick overview of what you need to do, when to do it, and why you're doing it. There are lots of photos and great instructional illustrations.
