East, check out www.midwestsupplies.com. They are in your neck of the woods and have several books. I started a post in here under ingredients called a suply source to consider anyway. I never read any books but scoured the internet, but what I learned the mostest was from everyone in here. I thank them.
I would say that all of the above suggestions are great. This forum is a great source of information, though making sure that any questions you have haven't already been addressed by searching is definitely a good step first step
Midwest is a great place to go after doing some internet research. I've found the folks there to be very helpful. Plus there are a few homebrew groups that meet in St. Paul and maybe a few of them have branched out into wine-making.
One good book for beginners and as a reference for experienced winemakers is Daniel Pambianchi's "Techniques in Home Winemaking." It's full of lots of up to date and useful info on basically all aspects of winemaking from fresh grapes and grape juice. It doesn't cover fruit wines and country wines, although alot of the information would be applicable to these wines as well.
you might just want to pickup a decent kit. I grabbed a WineXpert chianti, and its happily fermenting away. Granted I've made beer and mead for years, but wine does have its own 'needs' and differences.
You can even download instructions at Winexpert's website.
If you're brand new, I have a page that outlines the bare basics for beginners. It's at squidoo.com/how-to-make-wine-at-home-guide. It's not very advanced but it might help your understanding of the process
