Q: I recently got back from a fantastic trip to California, and of course did a bunch of wineries and all that, but until this trip I always thought of wine making as more of an art. I realized there's a lot of science behind it too, and being an engineer by trade, I got pretty geeked out about that. Does anyone know of any beginner books that talk about viticulture and/or enology? I'm not planning on starting a vineyard or anything, but think it would be cool to learn more about the science behind growing grapes and making wine. Sent by Shannon Editor: Shannon, here are a few wine books that our team has read and liked in the past. They aren't necessarily technical book, however — readers, do you have any recommendations for books that really tackle the science behind wine? • The Concise World Atlas of Wine by Hugh Johnson and Jancis RobinsonReading Between the Wines by Terry TheiseHeard it Through the Grapevine by Matt Skinner   Related: California Wine: Two Great Books & Stags Leap District (Image: Leela Cyd Ross)
