What needs to be done and how to do it
This is a good resource book on growing grapes, no frills, and very practical. It tells the reader what needs to be done and how to do it. All types of grapes are shown here as well as specifics on planting and picking the delectable fruit. The concepts and methods found in this book are carefully researched, particularly the pruning and vineyard construction sections. The author even presents various examples of methods, including the advantage and disadvantage of each method or system. However, the author's preference is organic methods, as the title clearly suggests. Still, he manages to give numerous solutions on grape growing problems. The book is also easy to read.

The best practical book on growing grapes
If you are looking for a practical guide to growing grapes based on verified research, this is the best I have found. The pruning and vinyard construction sections make this book outstanding, since you are given several methods with the advantage and disadvantage of each system.
A Guide to Grape Growing in The Northeast would be a more accurate title. Of the thurteen chapters in the book, only one specifically addresses organic grape growing and in only superficial terms. Save your money.

An excellent resource for beginners and veterans
After growing grapes casually (ornamentally, really) for the past five years, we somehow in a drought year came up with an outstanding crop of the most delicious grapes. Seeing some potential for our 40 acres, I recently invested in a small library on grape growing and winemaking, and find this book to be first-class. It is very straightforward and gives a great introduction to the growing of grapes in general, with enticing tangents about grape propagation and breeding. I did not find the book burdened by the "organic" in the title. He offers a wide variety of solutions to grape growing problems, and while his philosophy favors organic methods, I didn't find the book awkwardly tied to only those solutions. I thought it was very balanced.
