Family-owned S.A. Prüm, founded in 1911 by Sebastian Alois Prüm, has been in the hands of Raimund Prüm, head winemaker and Sebastian's grandson, since 1971. Under Raimund's leadership the property has earned a reputation as one of the most successful wineries in Germany's celebrated Mosel wine region.
The Prüm family has a rich and ancient history in the mid-Mosel, the preferred growing area in the Mosel. Here they owned vineyards in the towns of Bernkastel, Graach, Wehlen and Zeltingen since 1156.
Today, the estate comprises 40 acres of vineyards planted principally with Riesling. Over 15 acres of S.A. Prüm's holdings are located within the famed Wehlener Sonnenuhr ("sundial of Wehlen") domain. Named for the historic sundial painted on an outcrop of slate by a Prüm ancestor back in 1842, the incredibly steep Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard is a renowned source of what is arguably Germany's finest Riesling.
Under Raimund's leadership the property has earned a reputation as one of the most successful wineries in Germany's celebrated Mosel wine region.
Mosel Valley ABOUT THE WINERY
Based in Mosel
Here vines average 80 years and older and benefit from plentiful sunshine – a critical factor in the world's northernmost wine producing country. The soil is comprised of layers of finely decomposed, mineral-rich slate. Underneath, deep-lying aquifers provide the vines with adequate water during dry periods.
S.A. Prüm is a founding member of the Association of German Premium Wineries (VDP), a consortium of Germany's top producers. Raimund Prüm employs organic fertilization, hand-picking and strict yield control to ensure the utmost quality.
Day-to-day operations at S.A. Prüm are a family effort. Daughter Saskia Andrea (another S.A. Prüm) is integrally involved in winemaking and, after working at top wineries around the world, is poised to take over the reins from her father.
