Germany Revisited

Marcel Orford-Williams reflects on how history has shaped the German wine scene and on the how it has changed over the last decade.

Marcel's timing could not be better as he takes over the reins from Sebastian Payne MW in time for the exceptional 2015 vintage. This is the first time he has been back for ten years and he reflects on the rise of dry styles and reds as well as the successes of the vintage.
