This vintage book looks at the various methods that can be used for preparing and propagating grape vines for wine production, written by F. T. Bioletti. It includes detailed descriptions of the various techniques with information on their benefits, common problems, and much more. Contents include: "Selection and Preparation of the Vine-cuttings", "Method of Selection", "The Locality", "Vine Diseases", "The Vineyard", "The Vines", "Part of the Vine", "Form and Length of Cutting", "Conservation of Cuttings", "Definition of Good Vine Cuttings", etc. Frederic Theodore Bioletti (1865 - 1939) was an English-born American vintner. He studied at the University of California, Berkeley from 1889 to 1900, where he worked with prominent soil scientist Professor E.W. Hilgard. His work with Hilgard on the fermentation of wines under different conditions were significant in helping California vintners to refine their wine production practices and improving the resulting wines. Bioletti was the first chair of the Department of Viticulture and Enology and founded the grape breeding program at the University of California Agricultural Experiment Station. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
