Editorial Reviews

Review

Does a sound job. Independent on Sunday --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

“This is arguably the best of the titles so far in the ‘Finest Wines’ series and the best book about German wines in English for a generation.” --John Winthrop Haeger, author of North American Pinot Noir

“The author’s voice is consistently engaged and enthusiastic, and his book should appeal to a general readership of wine lovers as well as to anyone with a professional interest in German wine.” --David Schildknecht, German wine authority for The Wine Advocate and the Oxford Companion to Wine

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is part of a Fine Wine Series of Books. This is the first book of the series which I have purchased as most of the other wine areas / countries which have been written about have been well covered by other books. (In this regard I look forward to a book on Portuguese table wines, which to my mind are very poorly covered by existing wine books). This book is well edited, has high quality paper, photos, binding and is of a smaller dimension suitable for casual picking up and putting down. The book focuses on the best producers from the main wine areas of Germany in the opinion of the writer - some Mosel producers in particular which in my opinion make some of Germany's finest wine are not included here. Never mind that is not the reason why the book does not warrant 5 stars. The maps of the wine areas are on a regional scale - I constantly tried to refer to the maps to find the location of a village / town mentioned in the text but to no avail. Additional more detailed maps would have greatly enhanced the book...enough to warrant that 5th star.

This book is a good choise to learn about germany wines with history,terroir,classification,regions and producers,but the author could write more about the wines of each producer.

Finding good books about German wine is hard. They really do not exist. The information in this book is good-but there is not enough of it.. To be really great this book would need to be at least twice as long as it is and cover many more producers than it does. A half-step in the right direction when two full steps were needed.

needed updates on wine from the greatest white wine producing country on earth. Cannot top a German riesling from a quality producer and the author highlights many of them.

The only weakness is that the wine reviews of almost each producer are very limited and only from recent tastings.
