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 long, cold winter we went to almost summer-like conditions very quickly in April, causing a fast development of the vines. Flowering was finished by late May, three to four weeks earlier than average.The summer months were overall cooler, slowing down the ripening and providing excellent conditions with long hang-time. The remarkable note of 2011 was the hailstorm that hit the Middle Mosel on August 26. Luckily our 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.
Wehlener Sonnenuhr („Sonnenuhr“ literally means sundial) most famous and best vineyard of JJ Prüm; deep, weather-beaten grey slate soil, extreme steepness of 70%, south-southwest exposure; wines can be aged for years to express their fine minerality and depth.
grapes are hand-picked, predominantly single pale, fermentation in stainless steel with wild yeast.
