Typically, German wine maps cover the main wine regions (Anbaugebiete) as vague areas or blobs. However, the De Long German wine map is highly detailed and shows all of the main regions including the top vineyard areas, top wine villages and grape varieties. It also includes vineyard maps of both the Mosel and Rheingau regions.
This map is a great way to come to terms with the complexities of German wine.
Before this map was produced, every German wine map of the entire country showed overly generalized blobs of their major wine regions (Anbaugebiete). This vagueness was a complete disconnect from the incredibly detailed vineyard maps developed by the German wine authority, Deutsches Weininstitut. The challenge for Steve De Long was to retain as much detail as possible on a single map of Germany while maintaining legibility or in cartographer’s terms, good generalization.
Includes: all main wine regions (Anbaugebiete) broken down in sub-regions (Berech) and including top wine villages and grape varieties; detail maps of Rheingau and Mosel; adjacent regions of France, Luxembourg, and Switzerland.
All of the maps are made using the latest mapping technology, current wine laws and regulations of each region, as well as consultation with wine industry professionals.
