A Valuable Addition to my Wine Book Collection
on December 9, 2012
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.
