This volume contains a collection of vintage articles on the subject of vineyard soil, with information on preparation, taxonomy, location, and many other related aspects. Highly accessible and profusely illustrated, these timeless articles have been carefully selected for a modern readership, and are highly recommended for anyone with an interest in producing grapes. Contents include: “Classification of Soils”, “Soil, Situation and Aspect”, “Preparation of the Soil”, “Soil and Cultivation”, “Location and Soil, Preparation of the Ground and How to Cultivate the Soil”, “The Soil and its Preparation”, “Soil and Situation”, and “Soil and Situation 2”. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive.
