Another book you might find interesting is "Folk wines, cordials & 
brandies: ways to make them, together with some lore, reminiscences, and 
wise advice for enjoying them," by M.A. Jagendorf (NY: Vanguard Press, 
1963).  I picked up my copy because they name caught my eye (it turned out 
one of the professors I worked for was the author's son), and thought the 
topic interesting.  I'll admit I haven't tried anything yet, so I have no 
idea if any of the recipes are good (or the instructions appropriate for 
beginners) but it's got info on wines from just about everything.
