The famous wine estate Joh. Jos. Prüm was founded in 1911in Wehlen, on the Mosel. It is one of the most unique white wine producers in Germany.
After a cold winter, April brought summer-like conditions causing a fast development of the vines. Flowering was finished by late May, three to four weeks earlier than average. The remarkable note of 2011 was the hailstorm that hit the Middle Mosel on August 26. Luckily the Prüm vineyards were only slightly affected and perfect weather after the storm minimized the losses. September and October were overall sunny and golden. The main harvest lasted from October 5th to November 8th. The quality was great in 2011 and thankfully the quantity was also good.
Bernkasteler Badstube vineyards border on Graacher Himmelreich, but Badstube is more westwards and less steep; consequently the vines face less sun in the morning and they are lighter in the taste; weather-beaten grey slate soil
grapes are all hand-picked, predominantly single pale, fermentation with wild yeast
