The wines of the Mosel and the Rhine have achieved a well-deserved popularity over the years; yet to the average consumer their confusing multiplicity of names and the elaborate gradations of their classification and quality present a problem. It is not always easy to tell the commonplace from the good or the good from the remarkable. In Wines of Germany, which was first published in 1956 and became recognized as a classic, Frank Schoonmaker’s friendly, impartial and comprehensive style provides all the information that the wine-lover needs. District by district, village by village, he leads the reader through “this most beautiful of all wine countries...rich in history and anecdote, in legend and salty proverbs, in tradition and, most important to the connoisseur—in good wine.” This is an expert’s book, but written in layman’s language: it is readable, authoritative, concise and complete.
