Does not give you any confidence in the contents of the book,if they believe no one will notice the table grapes on the cover.
And who said you shouldn't judge a book by its cover?
Of course one CAN make wine from table grapes. I've done it myself, but it's not like wine as we know it, cap'n....
Alex, I'm intrigued. Did you just buy a job lot of table grapes down the market and then crush them in a plastic bin?
No, we've got a vine in our garden (Hombourg or Hamburg or something like that). One year I thought I'd make grape juice for the children, so I put the grapes in a juicer and then put the juice into a plastic bottle. The bottle got forgotten about for a couple of weeks, by which time it had swollen up. I opened it and found it had turned into something a bit alcoholic and a bit spritzy (not unlike a lambrusco). For what it's worth, the resulting juice was quite nice, but it's never going to win an IWC gold....
