How to Build and Maintain Your Own Small
Finally a book that makes home vineyard planting and
wine grape growing accessible to anyone with even a little spare land.
Since the author's business helps people plant small-scale vineyards and solve grape-growing problems, he has created a how-to book filled with valuable information for the novice viticulturist.
In 16 chapters and an extensive appendix, Powers presents the clear and up-to-date information home grape growers need to get started and produce successful grape harvests.
He also shares the advantages of grapevines as landscaping: low maintenance, aesthetic appeal, wine production and more. He also points out that vineyards cost less and require less water
than standard landscaping.
