Do not expect Reinhardt's book to be a comprehensive encyclopedia of all German wines and districts. It is though an excellent overview of present day wine-making and wine makers, written for those of us lucky enough to have an interest in German wine already. It takes in, as the book's title suggests, just a few of the finest examples of this countries' very underated and misunderstood wines and their makers. For once, the book introduces the producers by name and with informal photo portraits to make it a more human experience. It is clearly compiled for those who wish to expand their understanding and experience of this delightful subject - it is a door opener to wider appreciation and discovery, not an end in itself. Enthusiasts should not hesitate in getting a copy of this invaluable and well presented book.
