Présentation de l'éditeur

Terroir connotes a sense of place that imparts a distinctive character to wine. A central component of terroir is the soil and its immediate surroundings. Thus, an understanding of the basic properties of soils and how they function as a "living skin" on the earth's surface is of fundamental importance to grape growers and winemakers. Stripped of scientific jargon, Understanding Vineyard Soils explains to a wide audience how soils form and why they are so variable. Robert White describes essential chemical and physical processes involving nutrients, water, oxygen and carbon dioxide, moderated by the activities of soil organisms, and proposes remedies to alleviate adverse conditions such as soil acidity, compaction, poor drainage and salinity. The pros and cons of organic viticulture are discussed, as are the possible impacts of climate change. The author explains how sustainable wine production requires grape growers and winemakers to take care of the soil and minimize the impact of their activities on the environment. This book is a practical guide for viticulturists and for the lay reader who is seeking general information about soils, but who may also wish to pursue in more depth the influence of different soil types on vine performance and wine character. Understanding Vineyard Soils will discuss new developments, especially in precision viticulture and organic viticulture. The introduction will address new technologies (near and remote sensing, digital soil mapping) as well as traditional soil classification. Following a chapter on site selection are the three core chapters on vineyard and soil management - The Nutrition of Grapevines, Where the Vine Roots Live, and The Living Soil. The book is written from an international perspective - the important points discussed in Chapters 1 through 6 are illustrated with examples drawn from many wine regions around the world.

Biographie de l'auteur

Robert White has had an outstanding international career in soil, water and nutrient management for more than 40 years. After working for many years in broad-acre agriculture, he turned his attention to the fascinating interaction between soil and the flavor and aromas of wines world-wide, a topic that happily marries sensory pleasure with science.

New textbook on viticultural soils 17 janvier 2010
Par Michael A. Duvernois - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The old standard text was Soils for Fine Wines but this is quite a nice book. Fully up to date on the literal aspects of terroir, the soil beneath the grape vines. Robert White has written extensively on soil science and this book hits on both soil science basics (always in relation to wine grape growing though) and specific vineyard soil issues including climate change, organic viticulture, and sustainability. Modern land management techniques are also discussed, digital soil mapping and remote sensing for example. Good as a text for viticultural studies.

This book is a rare jewel: very well structured, to the point (206 pages of pure information, no conceptual wandering), thorough (no skimming over subjects). That said, this book is for viticultural soil scientists, budding viticulturists or wine making professionals.

Informative and comprehensive, layout and illustrations could be better 4 janvier 2013

An authoratitive reference on vinyard soils with good examples from around the world. The prodcution format of the book however could be much better, with illustrations on the same page as the reference and better quality photography.

Soils 25 mars 2014
Par jeffrey o. greiner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
If you are studying wine this is a good book not for the layman seeking general information. But because I am studying for my WSET Diploma, this book helped me understand the soils grapes like to grow on. Can get a bit technical. Price for this type of book is correct. Shipped and arrived on time. Thanks again Amazon.

This book is informative would be more useful if pictures were in color on some soil displayed. But very technical and may be handy in the future.
