I'm looking for some good books on fruit winemaking to start my venture through this wonderful side of zymurgy.

I am a Semi-experienced homebrewer and i am looking for something like The joy of homebrewing or How to brew for fruit winemaking.

Advices? What are the reference books? What are the classics?


Thanks in advance.

I don't want it to be too grape centric by the way.

The Home Winemaker's Manual by Lum Eisenman, or my personal favorite, Jack Keller's website.

Well, that's pretty much it. As far as I know, there isn't a definitive winemaking book like TJOBH or How to Brew. I refer to Jack Keller's website all the time, though. It's a bit hard to navigate at first, but it's the most comprehensive (and common sense) place to learn about fruit wines.

THey're both good books that will in no way hurt you to have and refer to. THat being said, the sources summersoltice gave, plus occasional help from sources like this site, are definitely all you need to make amazing fruit wine at home.

I enjoyed "the joy of home wine making", but I agree with what etp777 said.

Terry Garey's "The Joy of Home Wine Making" is a great book to have around,IMO.

I have Making Wild Wines & Meads by Pattie Vargas & Rich Gulling and really enjoy it, though it's more of a recipe book than a how-to book.
