Growing Vines to Make Wines

Nick Poulter


Following his conversion from elderberry to the grape thirty years ago, Nick Poluter and his former business partner began planting a commercial vineyard at Cranmore on the Isle of Wight. By 1984 the vineyard was producing 15'000 to 20'000 bottles a year and the associated vine nursery around 30'000 plants. The vineyard was sold at that time but the nursery continued until 1996.


When the first vines were planted at Cranmore there were only a dozen or so vineyards in England, but now that number has multiplied a hundredfold. In the pionerring days of the 1960s there were no exact parallels on the Continent or elsewhere and every English vinegrower learned the art by hard experience. This book, a fully updated amalgamation of two previously published popular titles, Growing Vines and Wines From your Vines, is based on that experience and sets out all the author would have liked to have known when he began himself. It is concise, yet detailed, and covers all aspects from planting the vines, through cropping and vinification to enjoying the final product!
