Wines are generally defined in one of three ways: by their country or region of origin, by their colour (red, white, pink) or by their style (still, sparkling, fortified). Only recently have wines begun to defined be by how their grapes have been grown and the wine made, with a clear distinction between modern ‘chemical’ wine-growing on one hand, and the chemical-free organic or natural approach on the other. Now the world’s most respected wine producers, from Bordeaux to the Barossa, from Chablis to California, increasingly see Biodynamics as the method of choice for blue-chip wine-growing. Biodynamic wine explains concisely and clearly the theory behind biodynamics, how biodynamics differs from organics, and how the world’s wine-growers – from blue chip Bordeaux chateaux to under-the-radar family estates – use biodynamics in practice, often with significant and captivating variations according to wine style, local terroir, weather and even lunar cycles. Biodynamic wine is a comprehensive and entertaining guide to the most argued-about green wine-growing phenomenon of recent years. It is both an ideal how-to manual for wine-growers, and a captivating guide for wine professionals and wine lovers alike.

Any number of guides offer to make wine a pleasant, predictable and unthreatening experience for the average British drinker. This is not one of them. Instead The Wild Bunch ventures beyond the clean, fruity and -- let's face it -- bland bottles which cram today's supermarket shelves to introduce a whole spectrum of unexpected flavours. In this provocative survey of what he calls 'the unreported wine revolution' Patrick Matthews encounters a new wave of growers and producers who are taking wine back to its regional roots. They are opinionated, perfectionist and unpredictable -- obsessed with authenticity and purity rather than high technology and marketing. And as they are at work all over the wine world, not just in the top-notch regions, they can provide startingly good value. At a time when drinkers are defying marketing wisdom with their enthusiasm for diversity and regional character, this is an entertaining and necessary guide to wines which have something to say -- wines with a story to tell.

"Wine is made in the vineyard" is the mantra of many a winemaker. But what does it mean, really? Esteemed winemaker and biodynamic pioneer Nicholas Joly believes a wine that is well-made in the vineyard must express its unique terroir—the character imbued by a vine's particular plot of well-tended earth. In Biodynamic Wine, Demystified, Joly shares the core philosophy behind biodynamic viticulture and why such practices result in wines of regional distinction. This process treats the vineyard as a self-perpetuating ecological whole influenced not only by terrestrial forces but those of the sun, moon and cosmos. He explains why the use of foreign substances such as pesticides and fertilizers in the vineyard, and aromatic yeasts and enzymes in the cellar, as well as mechanisms such as electric motors and pumps, disrupt this synergy and are ultimately counterproductive to a wine's best, consistent expression.

Records of German wine shipments date back to the early 13th century—and yet, despite the fact that Germany’s wines are rich in history and renown, a large proportion of the wine-drinking public still looks down upon them. Multi-award-winning author Stephen Brook addresses the strange and complex question of why this has been so, focusing in on some controversial German wine laws and issues such as vineyard classification. In addition, he guides wine lovers to the top vintages and producers and the best vineyard sites, and discusses a wide range of grape varieties and lesser-known wine styles.
