For centuries the Prüm family has lived and made wine in the village of Wehlen in the Mosel Valley. Their ancestors were living in or near Wehlen as early as the year 1156. Today Manfred Prüm runs his family's historic estate impeccably. Some of the greatest, most long-lived wines of Germany are made at J.J. Prum. The 55 acre estate consists of about 90% ungrafted, old vines. Holdings are in the best parts of the top Middle-Mosel sites: Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Zeltinger Sonnenuhr, Bernkasteler Lay and Bernkasteler Badstube. Plantings of the estate are 100% Riesling on steeply sloping Devon schist soil. Average annual production is about 15,000 cases. The harvest at J.J. Prüm is always extremely late. This allows the Riesling grapes in the cool Middle Mosel climate to be picked at ideal ripening conditions, the basis to produce wines of superb quality.

Graacher Himmelreich has very deep soils (great water maintenance); weathered Devon slate with higher clay content and pockets of blue slate. Wines are usually approachable sooner than Sonnenuhr.
