About the Winery
Founded in the mid-19th century, Weingut Joh. Jos. Prüm is a revered family-run winery tucked away in the picturesque Mosel region of Germany. Famed for its superior quality German wines, this winery is a testament to the brilliance of aged winemaking, combined with contemporary refinement.
The vineyard stretches out over 14 hectares, flourishing on the steep, rocky slopes of the Mosel River, lending its wines a vibrant, minerally essence that is characteristic of the region. The vineyard is predominantly home to Riesling grapes, which make up about 95% of its production. In the expert hands of the Prüm family, these exceptional grapes are transformed into exquisitely balanced wines, ranging from feathery-light, off-dry Kabinett to intensely sweet, delicately poised Trockenbeerenauslese.
Over the years, Weingut Joh. Jos. Prüm has firmly established itself as a powerhouse in German viticulture. Despite its global acclaim, the winery remains an intimately-tied family endeavour. Current owner Manfred Prüm, emphasises quality, tradition and family heritage in all his vintner practices. It's this dedication and passion that shine through in every bottle of wine produced from this exemplary estate.
One of the distinct elements of the Prüm vineyard is its adherence to classic winemaking techniques, like long fermentation in traditional oak barrels, and lengthy maturation before the wines are released to the market. This approach may seem old-fashioned, yet it consistently results in wines of extraordinary depth, complexity, and longevity, that stand apart in the realms of fine wine.
Undoubtedly, a visit to Weingut Joh. Jos. Prüm is a memorable occasion for any wine enthusiast. The tantalising taste of their famed Rieslings, breathtaking views of the Mosel valley and a deep dive into rich winemaking tradition is an experience sure to linger on one’s palate for years to come.
In conclusion, Weingut Joh. Jos. Prüm is not merely a winery, its a symbol of unerring dedication to the craft of winemaking, where innovation meets tradition to produce wines that captivate both the taste buds and the heart.
