Book Review: 130 New Wine Making Recipes

Title:  130 New Winemaking Recipes
By:  CJJ Berry
Publisher:  Fox Chapel Publishing
Published Date: Sept. 1, 2011

This book starts out with a beautiful colorful cover. 

We begin with a welcome to wine making, how it is increasing in popularity, that it is easier than most think, and a list of items you will need. We proceed with "What Wine Is" with a thorough description. The author then gives us a great "do's and don'ts" list.

Then my favorite part...the recipes! Here are some of them:
Apple Wine, sounds yummy!
Barley and other grain wines...great for the farmers.
Blackberry wine, sounds wonderful! More fruit wines too.
Wines made from flowers and/or herbs.
Coffee wine for coffee lovers.

The author also includes some Christmas drink recipes and some Beer and Stout recipes.

There is a wonderful index in the back of the book which lists all the different recipes to help find them easily, along with the how to's and where to find them.

Another thing I love about this book is the wine related cartoons interspersed throughout the book.
