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 various dangers that lie alongside the best way. John Kiger tracks the nefarious denizens of the winery global: the host of bugs, fungi, micro organism, and viruses, in addition to the feathered and bushy 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 very 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 publications the once a year fight to coax nice wine from a steep hillside and some thousand vines. Combining historical past, technology, expertise, and private event, this booklet vividly brings to lifestyles the hard-fought battles at the back of the wines we savor.
