Debra Meiburg MW Meets the Winemaker 138: Dr. Manfred Prum, Weingut Joh. Jos. Prüm
Debra catches up with Dr Manfred Prüm of Weingut Joh Jos Prüm, a highly regarded winery located in the Mosel Valley, Germany, founded in 1911 by Johann Josef Prüm. Today it is owned and managed by Dr. Manfred Prüm and his daughter Dr. Katharina Prüm, producing Riesling from famous sites like Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Zeltinger Sonnenuhr and Bernkasteler Badstube.
Debra finds out what is so special about Mosel Riesling, which cuisines are best matched to Mosel Riesling and how Joh Jos Prüm make great aromatics in Riesling. Then, despite the fact that he says “no comment” when Debra asks for a prediction of the 2009 vintage, he eventually gives his thoughts (with the benefit of hindsight, see if he is right!).
