"Wine Fermentation" is a vintage treatise on the production of wine written by F. T. Bioletti, including instructions for wineries and chapters on pure yeast. 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. Contents include: "Directions for the Production of Yeast Starters", "Natural Starters", "Pure Yeast Starters", "Directions for Dry Red Wine Fermentation", "Sulfiting", "Records", "Addition of Yeast Starters", "Covering", "Stirring", "Cooling", etc. This book will appeal to those with an interest in the history and development of winemaking techniques, and it is not to be missed by collectors of vintage winemaking literature. 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 and introduction on winemaking.
