What a fascinating read, Betty! I grew up in Germany, and I racell just loving the fairly sweet (and also not cheap) high quality Rhein / Mosel / Saar / Ruwer wines. I wondered what happened in the meantime, and why most of the wines one sees on the shelves today in US grocery stores from Germany are so cheap and not that good. This explains at least some of it!So my question for you is how to locate those very tasty and somewhat sweet wines from my younger days? They must be out there somewhere. I do racell that some of your Wine Shop at Home sweeter wines do remind me somewhat of the wines of my youth.
