A Vineyard Odyssey: The Organic Fight to Save Wine from the by John Kiger

By John Kiger

A winery Odyssey is an interesting saga of wine—the trip from vine to bottle—that takes the reader on a travelogue of the numerous dangers that lie alongside the way in which. John Kiger tracks the nefarious denizens of the winery global: the host of bugs, fungi, micro organism, and viruses, besides the feathered and hairy critters, that lurk in vineyards. All are in a position to sabotaging a promising classic correct less than the nostril of an unsuspecting grower. but instead of responding with poisonous chemical substances, Kiger explains how an natural method of cultivation can triumph over or at the least comprise them. Highlighting the various dangers of nature that lie hidden in any classic, the writer tells the tale of a winegrower and an natural philosophy that courses the once a year fight to coax nice wine from a steep hillside and some thousand vines. Combining heritage, technology, know-how, and private adventure, this booklet vividly brings to lifestyles the hard-fought battles in the back of the wines we savor.
