Weingut J.J Prüm is without question one of the finest estates in the Mösel. Sebastian Alois Prum established it in 1911, after he received the vineyards as his share of the inheritance. He soon after built the winery up to a respected estate but it was under the stewardship of his son Sebastian that the estate really began to hit its stride. Sebastian's son, Manfred, has run the estate since 1969.
The estate has 33.5 acres of vineyards planted with Riesling on steeply-sloping, Devon schist soils. The vast majority of the holdings are in the top middle-Mösel sites: Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Zeltinger Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Graacher Domprobst, Bernkasteler Lay, Bernkasteler Badstube and Bernkasteler Bratenhöfchen. Yields are severely restricted and harvesting is late and often continues through to late November. The winemaking is meticulous and the wines are characterised by their purity of fruit as well as by their distinctive mineral/slate character.
