The enjoyable nectar of grapes and the business of bringing wine to consumers has already had a long history, but never before has the wine industry seen so much change. The Business of Wine is aimed at anyone with an interest in broadening his or her view of wine to encompass some of the fascinating complexities of the business side of this international industry. The book provides substantive insight into the structure and economics of the industry as well as into the various trends and pressures which are currently affecting it. Wine lovers can go to a bookstore and find a myriad of guides to the wines of the world, however these volumes leave many gaps. The Business of Wine provides a global overview of wine as a business. While it is still possible to drive through Provence, Napa Valley or Mendoza, unearthing a unique case of undiscovered nectar, the real backbone of today's wine industry lies elsewhere. The structure and complex functions of the wine industry form this backbone and are examined in detail in The Business of Wine.

Wine is the most loved beverage across the world and a popular accompaniment with food. The popularity of wine in India has started growing rapidly. Wine is the fermented product of the grape. Because crushed grapes contain all that is needed to create wine, ancient wine producers simply allowed nature to take its course. As time went on, people realized that by intervening at certain times, they could make a wine with more predictable characteristics. Grape cultivation is one of the most remunerative farming enterprises in India. Grapes can be eaten raw or they can be used for making wine, jam, juice, jelly, vinegar. Delicate wine grapes are generally produced in frost free and moderate temperature environments. Thousands of grape varieties are grown all over the world; the wine grape varieties represent only a fraction of them. The colour, size, phenolic distribution and acidity of grapes give each wine its own characteristic. Wine quality is affected by the factors such as soil, climate, viticulture and wine making techniques. Wine quality is dictated mainly by the grapevines, not by the winemaker. Wine must be slightly aged to be drinkable. Grape production, linked with wine processing has provided the much-needed impetus for the growth of the wine industry. Indian government plays a crucial role in the current phase of Indian wine industry, supporting the current momentum amongst others through financial assistance and market protection. Gradual reduction of import duty levels will no doubt lead to increasing competition through imports, but will on the longer term result in a competitive industry that is able to export its top quality products to overseas markets. Some of the fundamentals of the book are wine quality, mold and mold complexes associated with grapes, grape aroma components, soluble solids in winemaking, the molds and yeasts of grapes and wine molds, yeasts of grapes and wine, by-products of fermentation, chemistry of fermentation and composition of wines, outline of red wine making, stuck wines, white table wine, sparkling wine, vermouth and flavoured wines, cider and apple wine, plum wines in Europe, berry wines in pacific coast states, cherry and plum wines in pacific coast states, pomegranate wine from concord grapes, pineapple wine, pear wine, wine from oranges, grapefruit wine, wine from dried fruits, Swiss research on fruit juice fermentation honey wine (mead), etc. This book provides a complete detail on all aspects of Wine production like describe the varieties of wine available, its manufacturing process, bottling and storage of wine, quality control in wine making and many more. It is hoped that this book will be very resourceful to all its readers, students, scientists, technocrats, existing industries, new entrepreneurs and all those who are related to wine making.

"Most books out there will show you the process, the ingredients you need and how it all works, but none of them show you how to make it just right. If you learn how to make a cheap $5 bottle of wine, you might as well just buy that and not spend your valuable time and effort, but what if you knew how to make that $100 bottle of wine, wouldn’t that be worth spending your time and energy on? Something you can share and enjoy with your friends and family? In this book, I show you just how to make it all perfect and how to eventually sell your wine and make some extra income. This book is divided into two parts, in the first part, I show you how to make wine at home, the whole process. Next, in the second part, I discuss how to start selling your wine and start a small business."
