(SOUNDBITE) (German) WINEMAKER, JENS ZIMMERLE, SAYING: "What's changed is that because the climate changed, the harvest season is a lot earlier now. In certain years, we start harvesting at the end of August, something we had never seen before in previous years. This obviously works in favour of the red wine production. We are now able to produce bold, heavy red wines and through the climate change phenomenon we no longer have these cold periods which are essential to make ice wine. The tendency is that these cold months with low temperatures are getting fewer and fewer." ZIMMERLE'S VINEYARD OFFENBACH, GERMANY (MARCH 11, 2020) (REUTERS) METEOROLOGIST OF GERMAN WEATHER SERVICE (DWD), ANDREAS FRIEDRICH, WALKING PAST / DWD FLAGS (SOUNDBITE) (German) METEOROLOGIST, GERMAN WEATHER SERVICE (DWD), ANDREAS FRIEDRICH, SAYING: "I would say the winemaker from the Rems valley was lucky because conditions in Germany this year were very poor. Some of our (weather) stations did not record any frost, not even at night, especially up north. Out of the 500 stations 185 reported no 'ice day' where temperatures were at freezing point all day long. So, conditions for making ice wine were indeed very poor and he was definitely lucky." DWD FLAGS (SOUNDBITE) (German) METEOROLOGIST, GERMAN WEATHER SERVICE (DWD), ANDREAS FRIEDRICH, SAYING: "The winter 2019/2020 at 4.1 degree C (39.3 F) was the second warmest on record since 1881. Only in 2007 temperatures were 0.3 degrees C warmer. What surprises us is that this is the ninth winter in a row where it was too warm and that's something not seen since 1881. So, it can be said that climate change is in full swing and it even increased its speed." DWD FLAGS
