Soils for Fine Wines
by Robert E. White

Soils for Fine Wines considers the influence of vineyard conditions and the interaction between it, local climate, vineyard practices, and grape variety on the quality of grapes and distinctiveness of their flavor in wine.

It provides basic information on soil properties and behavior in the context of site selection for new vineyards and on the demands placed on soils for grape growth and production of wines. More importantly, the book aims to provide a sound understanding of the best practices for managing soils of diverse properties, for the main purpose of optimizing the value of wines, and also for maintaining satisfactory soil health and physical condition in the longer term.

Soils for Fine Wines will be of interest to professors and upper-level students in enology, viticulture, soils and agronomy as well as wine enthusiasts and professionals in the wine industry.
