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.

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.

This review is two-fold. Firstly , the seller did a first- rate job of filling my order! The book itself is very informative, quite interesting for anyone interested in the science involved in wine producing. Being somewhat of a neophyte , I have learned quite a bit from this publication and have already found and tried some of the wines from vineyards mentioned within!

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.

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.
