In "Postmodern Winemaking," Clark Smith shares the extensive
knowledge he has accumulated in engaging, humorous, and erudite
essays that convey a new vision of the winemaker's craft--one that
credits the crucial roles played by both science and art in the
winemaking process. Smith, a leading innovator in red wine
production techniques, explains how traditional enological
education has led many winemakers astray--enabling them to create
competent, consistent wines while putting exceptional wines of
structure and mystery beyond their grasp. Great wines, he claims,
demand a personal and creative engagement with many elements of the
process. His lively exploration of the facets of postmodern
winemaking, together with profiles of some of its practitioners, is
both entertaining and enlightening.
