Viticulture and Environment: A study of the effects of environment on grapegrowing and wine qualities, with emphasis on present and future areas fo (Paperback)
When Viticulture and Environment was first published in 1992 it became an immediate success, and has since become a viticultural classic, a staple in the libraries of viticulturists and winemakers alike. In Viticulture and Environment John Gladstones, already a highly respected horticultural and viticultural scientist, not only compiled a vast databank of climatic data on Australian and world grapegrowing sites, but produced one of the most lucid expositions of the interactions between the environment and viticulture.
Reprinted several times, Viticulture and Environment has proved a solid and reliable resource, regarded as a 'bible' on viticulture, but has long been out of print. This new edition, which includes minor updates but preserves the essential text, brings this critical resource back into circulation and also makes it available in electronic format for the first time.
Viticulture and Environment also provides the foundation for John Gladstones's later development of his thinking on viticulture, published as Wine, Terroir and Climate Change (Wakefield Press, 2011).
