Ordering the Guides
East of Eden is unique. It offers clear and precise instructions on how to best accomplish each task, complete with phone numbers and websites for suppliers. This is not an academic text book that can sometimes leave the reader bewildered by too many different ways to do too many different tasks. It is a guide, a practical "how-to" book, founded on hundreds of years of combined experienced of growers in the Midwest, East, North and South. This guide is so important, and inexpensive, that we would love to give it away free with every order, but we have learned over the years that "nobody will read a free book" and that is the only reason we ask for a buy-in by the grower. We sell it at our cost to print, box and mail.
Go for the Gold is an opinionated, no-nonsense, guide through the jungle of winemaking based on over 55 years’ experience winning numerous Gold Medals in all major national competitions as well as a Gold Medal from the International Wine and Spirits Competition awarded at the British House ofCommons, in London, England. The authors’ wine was also selected as a Gourmet Magazine Wine of the Month, and won a Gold at the only National Norton Festival ever held.
Go for the Gold always gives the names and contact information for the preferred suppliers of any of the products it recommends … as well as pointing out those to avoid. When it comes to making dry white wine, in particular, Go for the Gold is far more than a “guide”. It is rather a map though a mine-field where one misstep can turn gold into bronze, or worse. Go for the Gold is a must-have vade mecum for the serious professional winemaker.
