good for rookies

not bad very educational and enjoyable. I'm already a wine maker and didn't learn anything too new but it's a great book if you've been thinking about making wine.

not worth the price of postage

What would have made Wine Making for the Total Novice better?

i am a home winemaker so i was hoping some a fair amount of detail. this was not the case:simplistic. I suppose if you ere making wine from welch's it might be helpful.

Would you ever listen to anything by Kyle Richards again?

yeswho spoke it was not the issue; it

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dan McGowan?

not sure

What character would you cut from Wine Making for the Total Novice?

not the character, the book

Any additional comments?
