Weingut Joh. Jos. Prüm is a German wine estate located in the Mosel wine region. It was founded in 1911 by Johann Josef Prüm and has been owned and operated by the Prüm family for several generations. The estate is known for its Riesling wines, which are considered among the finest in Germany and the world.
The vineyards of Joh. Jos. Prüm are located on steep slopes along the Mosel River, where the soil is predominantly slate. The estate owns 33 hectares of vineyards, including some of the most famous sites in the Mosel region, such as Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, and Zeltinger Sonnenuhr.
The winemaking philosophy at Joh. Jos. Prüm is focused on producing wines that are a true expression of their terroir. The grapes are hand-picked and carefully selected to ensure only the highest quality fruit is used. The wines are fermented with natural yeasts and aged in large oak casks, with minimal intervention from the winemaker.
Joh. Jos. Prüm produces a range of Riesling wines, from dry to sweet, including Kabinett, Spätlese, Auslese, Beerenauslese, and Trockenbeerenauslese. The wines are known for their vibrant acidity, minerality, and complexity, and can age for decades.
The estate has received numerous awards and accolades over the years, including being named "Winemaker of the Year" by Gault Millau in 1996, and having their wines listed among the "Top 100 Wines of the Year" by Wine & Spirits magazine multiple times.
