Home Winemaking Step by Step
This is a great book to sit down and read through before you begin making wine from grapes. It goes through each step a winemaker follows, from the equipment to the yeast, from fining to fermenting.
It would have been helpful to have more photos and high quality illustrations in the book - you are restricted to simple line drawings when reading about the various things going on in the description. Usually they suffice, though, and you can figure out what to do.
This might not be the best 'only one' book for an all-around winemaker - it concentrates on making wine from grapes, while most home winemakers foray extensively into fruit winemaking. Also, it doesn't have recipes in it, so you'll need a companion book to figure out what you're making. Still, this is a very valuable book and should be on the shelf of any home winemaker.
