The tremendous diversity of its wines is a revelation to many visitors to Germany. This book offers many tips to the independent traveller on where to enjoy the local cuisine with these delightful wines as well as meeting the winemakers, as it guides visitors on a journey through Germany's thirteen wine regions.

The British wine journalist Freddy Price is one of the most recognized experts on German wines, and has written important books such as the award-winning "Riesling Renaissance". Together with his wife and fotographer Janet, he has been awarded by the VDP and gourmet magazins for their excellent publications, and even according to colleagues such as Hugh Johnson, hardly any wine expert knows more about the German Riesling vineyards than Freddy Price.
