The Prüm family has a rich and ancient history in the mid-Mosel,
the preferred growing area in the Mosel region, where they have owned
vineyards in the towns of Bernkastel, Graach, Wehlen and Zeltingen
since 1156 and have produced wine commercially for over 200 years.
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 and well-recognized sundial painted on an outcrop of slate
by a Prüm ancestor back in 1842, the incredibly steep Wehlener
Sonnenuhr vineyard is a globally renowned source of what is arguably
Germany's finest Riesling. As the name suggests, Wehlener Sonnenuhr,
where vines average 80 years and older, benefits 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 blue slate that date back approximately 400 million years.
Underneath, deep-lying aquifers provide the vines with adequate water
during dry periods.
