 About the Book 

This volume contains the full unabridged text of seventeen previously long out of print articles written or co-written in English and Afrikaans by A I Perold between 1903 and 1923. Abraham Izak Perold (1880 -1941) has a good claim to being the father of not only the modern South African wine industry but also those of brandy and table grapes Dr Perold wrote more than eighty pamphlets and articles published in English and Afrikaans between 1906 and 1940. These cover topics as varied as a history of grape growing and wine in South Africa, making brandy and grape syrup, laying out vineyards, manuring them, pruning vines, training farmers, the suitability of various rootstocks, yeasts and volatile acidity.
