The average Italian makes his own wine as a matter of course - just as one might make a cup of coffee. And the same might soon be said of Britain and America. Since the '45 war there has been a tremendous revival of home winemaking. Although formerly the preserve of the countryman, home winemaking is now attracting the interest of thousands of town-dwellers, and scientific developments are making such wine better and easier to produce. This book lists all the common fruits for home winemaking, plus some of the more exotic types; some recipes for making wines similar to those you buy - such as Burgandy - but from fruits other than grape; and some old recipes going back over 200 years.
