“She lived frugally, but her meals were the only things on which she deliberately spent her money. She never compromised on the quality of her groceries, and drank only good-quality wines.”
― Haruki Murakami, 1Q84

 

German wines can be hard to pronounce and a little difficult for wine novices to understand as the new wave of German wines are becoming dryer and dryer.  One producer that we have counted on every year for consistency and quality is JJ Prüm. This is a classic style German producer and they produce Riesing at the highest level for this style.  But there are a lot of great dry Rieslings out there today and Germany's neighbor Austria is also one of the leading producers of this varietal today.  There are even some producers in the USA that feel New York state could be the place for this varietal in this country. 

Join us as we experience a few of the new releases from this epic producer from the Mosel along with a total of 12 Riesling wines to give our tasters perspective on this great white varietal.    This tasting includes a five course tasting menu to showcase this ultimate whites ability to pair with savory, sweet and spicy cuisine. This is a seated event and there are only 14 spaces available for this tasting.  The fee for this tasting/dinner is $75 + tax, for reservations call 954-523-9463 or e-mail andy@winewatch.com.

A bit about JJ Prum:

Dr. Prüm was chosen Winemaker of the Year in 1996 and had the collection of the year in 2007 by The Gault-Millau/German Wine Guide. Since 1156 the Prüms have called the village of Wehlen home.  The Prüm estate as we know it today began with Sebastian Alois Prüm (1794-1871); his brother Jodocus constructed the Wehlener and Zeltinger sundials. Of his six sons only Mathias (1835-1890) married. In 1911 the estate was split amongst Mathias’s four sons and three daughters. It was when his oldest son, Joh. Jos. Prüm, started the estate. Joh. Jos. Prüm was in poor health when his son Sebastian took over in 1920 and went on to establish the world repute of the estate which continues to this day. After his death in 1969, his son Dr. Manfred Prüm assumed the responsibility and today Manfred and his oldest daughter, Katharina work in parallel to manage the estate. It’s most important vineyard holdings are the Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Zeltinger Sonnenuhr and Bernkasteler Badstube. The vineyards are planted 95% Riesling. The Joh. Jos. Prüm estate ferments its Riesling almost exclusively with indigenous yeast. Annual production is 15,000 cases.
