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 mild and humid winter, April was dry and hot with temperatures up to 25 °C [77 °F]. The sunny days and humid soils caused an early budbreak by mid of April and flowering started at the end of May. In August and September temperatures were rather cool, so the ripening process slowed down. Finally, harvest time in October and November offered perfect conditions: very healthy and aromatic grapes were picked during cool temperatures and dry weather. Only little botrytis affected the grapes, so a small quantity of BA and TBA could be harvested. Icewine was produced in the Graacher Himmelreich in December.
