Family-owned S.A. Prum, founded in 1911 by Sebastian Alois Prumm, has been in the hands of Raimund Prum, 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 estate comprises 40 acres of vineyards planted principally with Riesling. Over 15 acres of S.A. Prum’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 Prum ancestor back in 1842, the incredibly steep Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard is a renowned source of what is arguably Germany’s finest Riesling.
