      The majority of Germany’s best wines are made from Riesling, the great grape of best vineyard sites in the Mosel, Rheingau, Nahe and Pfalz wine regions are planted almost exclusively with Riesling.. In challenging growing seasons, Riesling stands little chance of ripening. This reference book explores the wine regions of Germany with details of the key wine producers and their wines. It also covers topics such as the controversial German wine laws, issues including vineyard classification and the numerous grape varieties planted in the country.

      Records of German wine shipments date back to the early 13th century—and yet, despite the fact that Germany’s wines are rich in history and renown, a large proportion of the wine-drinking public still looks down upon them. Multi-award-winning author Stephen Brook addresses the strange and complex question of why this has been so, focusing in on some controversial German wine laws and. German wine labels are very informative once all the information given can be identified and interpreted. While many other wines will list only the producer, vintage, region, and country; German labels will state the quality level of the wine, the grape, the vineyard, and a style or taste indication.
