Icewine in Germany: Deep frost brings forth vintage 2021

In the week before Christmas, wineries from most of the 13 German wine-growing regions had ideal conditions for harvesting icewine. The world-famous rarity from Germany brings wine producers worldwide attention and joy to so many winelovers around the globe. 

The Johanneshof winery in Bad Kreuznach-Bosenheim was the first to be able to harvest icewine this winter season 2021. According to the owner Martin Korrell, Riesling grapes could be harvested at temperatures of minus eight degrees in the ”Bad Kreuznacher Paradise” site.
