Item description for The Gault Millau Guide to German Wines (Gault Millau Guides) Soft Cover by Armin Diel & Joel Payne...
In the last decade more and more German wines are again finding distribution in the U.S. The whites are light and elegant and offer great value; in particular the German Rieslings compete well with any other grape variety.
Divided by the major districts, the Gault Millau Guide to German Wines describes the individual regions, and their history and geography, commenting on well established growers and little-known, very often family-run vineyards.
This is an in-depth analysis and critique of the current German wine culture. It's layout is concise and clear, and the rating system is user-friendly. The range is vast and thorough, covering contact information for the producers, best estates, wines of the last three years, and a label primer. The Gault Millau Guide to German Wines embraces the whole spectrum of the world's most under-rated wine country and emphasizes the trend for elegant German Rieslings, Silvaner, and Muller Thurgau grapes, and the increasingly important Pinot Noirs.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Gault Millau Guide to German Wines (Gault Millau Guides) Soft Cover?
Take note: This is not a book. Dec 11, 2007
This is not a book, it is a GUIDE (as advertised). And it covers specifics! It is age-sensitive due to descriptions of the vintages. They also use the phrase "this year" alot. It goes over thousands of german producers and wines (with ratings and contact information). Alot of info. If you are already pretty familiar with German wines than this is a great guide for you. If you are looking for a book in which to learn about German wines, this will certainly help, but you may want to look into something a little more basic.
