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.

From the Inside Flap:

"I love this book: it’s brave, provocative, and fun. Smith has a writing style that’s engaging and that enlivens what would otherwise risk being indigestible wine science. This is a significant contribution to the literature on winemaking."
Jamie Goode, author of The Science of Wine and coauthor of Authentic Wine

“In this masterful, insightful, and practical work, Clark Smith provides shape, focus, and comprehension to a wide array of wine processes that complement art and science. A must-read for all in the industry.”
Dr. Bruce Zoecklein, Virginia Tech University

"An engaging, frequently controversial, but always thoughtful treatise that delves into the complexity of philosophical choices and new technologies that are now part of every winemaker's existence in a world where consilience of art and science is frequently needed."
Joel Peterson, founder of Ravenswood Winery

"With the inordinate amount of competition in the modern wine business, winemakers need to equip themselves with a deeper, essentially philosophical view of where complexity and greatness in wine truly resides. This book is a great contribution to that discussion."
Randall Grahm, founder of Bonny Doon Vineyard and author of Been Doon So Long
