Sunday read: Snapshots from Germany’s Wine Country

This Sunday’s read has been around on Facebook and the internet over the last week. I first saw it posted by a Korean Facebook friend of mine, then my fellow blogger Kittisak posted it in his Facebook group German Wine Lover the other day. I had earmarked this for my Sunday read, so I am still going ahead in the hope that you have not read it.

The editor at Serious Eats: Drinks, Maggie Hoffman, was recently taken on a trip to the Nahe, Mosel and Rheinhessen (remember, I come from Rheinhessen and I lived at the Mosel) by the German Wine Institute in an effort to promote German wines worldwide. She wrote an appealing piece with gorgeous photos, and she quotes a couple of winemakers on aging riesling. I thought she did a good job at portraying these landscapes and winemakers, and pointing out the differences to New World wineries.

As an aside: The piece is very poorly edited. I am a stickler for correct spelling, and there are quite a couple of typos in there, beside the random use of the umlaut (the two dots over vowels) and clear misspellings of names. I find that annoying, because it really is not that hard. It does not diminish the great content of the article,  just the reading of it.

Anyways, I hope you have a great Sunday!
