Vineyards, Rocks, & Soils: The Wine Lover's Guide to Geology

Title: Vineyards, Rocks, & Soils
Author: Alex Maltman
Publisher: Oxford
What strikes you first when looking at a vineyard? Perhaps the vines themselves? Your eye may be caught by random scatterings of gnarly old bushes or by the military neatness of rows of trained vines, luxuriant foliage in summer and little more than gaunt woody skeletons in winter. But possibly more striking might be the land itself--the geology, or at least manifestations of it. The vines may extend across a vast, flat plain, or they may be perched on a vertiginous slope, or anywhere in between--it depends on the bedrock geology. How well the vines grow will be influenced by how that bedrock weathers into soil and how the vine roots respond. The soil may have an eye-catching color or may be astonishingly stony, consisting of little more than rock debris. This quality, too, depends on geology.
