Description

Germany
might be the most misunderstood wine country on the planet. Hobbled by an
idiotic wine law, labelling conventions that are nothing but quixotic to
non-German speakers and still settled with a residual Liebfraumilch image,
German wine is confusing, even for experts. But despite this baggage Germany
today is a vibrant, creative and progressive wine country at the very heart of
Europe. Wine is made in thirteen regions across four degrees of latitude. Anne
Krebiehl MW, an acknowledged expert on German wine, showcases the new Germany
(with far more clean-cut labelling) and gets rid of a few misconceptions and
prejudices in the process.The wines of Germany explains Germany's intrinsic
regionality and puts the country into context in terms of its climate and
geography. Krebiehl explains why rivers and slopes are so important to German
viticulture and puts it in an economic context. She analyses Germany's
unusually fragmented producer base and its challenging climate and vintage
variation before examining in detail the wines of today's German regions.
