I found an old book a few days ago: Deutschland in Bildern – Städte und Landschaften from 1922. My German isn’t all that up to date and when written in fracture style letters it isn’t easier. In this case though it is mainly a photo book with pictures taken between ca 1910-20 so it really wasn’t all that hard.
In the book are several pictures of cities, villages, landscapes and monuments – capturing Germany at the time. Then as today they cultivated vines, by Mosel, by Rhine as well as in other parts.
Here a but a few of the pictures, pictures that in one way or another concerns vineyards, and though perhaps more the landscapes might be a tad more pastoral than today, it’s not really that much of a difference.
Though I can’t say for sure, in all cases, there’s still a good chance that these places are still cultivated with vines, and that they will be for a foreseeable future.
So as I miss ProWein this year I still get to enjoy Germany a bit through these pictures – to all my freinds and to all #winelovers have a great ProWein and Winelovers hangout in Mosel.
