GARAGISTA: A Home Wine Making Book by Ralph Cipriano
The story begins at the kitchen table of the author's late grandparents, where Grandma's homemade pasta was served alongside Grandpop's homemade wine. Cipriano then takes readers on his own journey to learn how to make an award-winning homemade wine. It's a how-to book that celebrates the beauty of the ancient process, by chronicling the joys and labors of
a garagista, somebody who makes wine in their garage.
