About the authors: Jack Keller lived in Pleasanton, Texas, a half-hour south of San Antonio. Winemaking was his passion, and for decades he made wine from just about anything fermentable and nontoxic. Jack developed scores of recipes and tended to gravitate to the exotic or unusual, having once won first place with jalapeño wine, second place with sand burr wine, and third with Bermuda grass clippings wine.
After settling permanently in Texas, Jack was six times elected President of the San Antonio Regional Wine Guild, became a certified home wine judge, was a periodic contributor to WineMaker Magazine, and was the creator and author of The Winemaking Home Page—the largest home winemaking website in the world. Jack’s WineBlog was the first winemaking blog on the internet. Jack married his high school sweetheart, Donna, and was an avid fly fisherman. He was a mentor to thousands of amateur winemakers.
