Chatham Courier Raves About J. Stephen Casscles GRAPES OF THE HUDSON VALLEY

J. Stephen Casscles is one of the most unsung and most important figures in east coast wine. He is responsible for writing a multitude of laws which have helped to turn around the wine industry in New York state. He is also one of the best winemakers in New York state. AND now he has published one of the most important winemaking books for the north east since Philip Wagner first started advocating hybrids in the mid-1900s! This book covers vinifera, hybrid and cold climate grapes, best practices, and practical advice. Fantastic!
