Founded in 1911 by Sebastian Alois Prum, family owned S.A. Prum has been in the hands of Raimund Prum, head winemaker and Sebastian's grandson, since 1971 when he assumed full management of the estate. The property has earned a reputation as one of Germany's most successful wineries, internationally acclaimed for its production of superb quality Riesling. The Prum family has a rich and ancient history in the mid Mosel, where they have owned vineyards in the towns of Bernkastel, Graach, Wehlen and Zeltingen.

Today, 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 and well recognized sundial painted on an outcrop of slate by a Prum ancestor back in 1842, the incredibly steep Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard is a globally renowned source of what is arguably Germany's finest Riesling. As the name suggests, Wehlener Sonnenuhr, where vines average 80 years and older, benefits from plentiful sunshine u a critical factor in the world's northernmost wine producing country. The soil is comprised of layers of finely decomposed, mineral rich blue slate that date back approximately 400 million years. Underneath, deep lying aquifers provide the vines with adequate water during dry periods.

The Prum family has roots in Mosel region of Germany that date back as far as 1156, making it one the country's preeminent winemaking dynasties. The current estate, now a century old and located in Wehlen in the heart of the Mosel, has been under the direction of Raimund Prum since 1971. Under his leadership and the involvement of his daughter Saskia, the property has become one of the region's most successful wineries, boasting an international reputation for the production of exquisite Rieslings in a range of styles that satisfy and please every palate.

TASTING NOTES: The S.A Prum Blue Riesling displays light gold color with exotic aromas and intense fragrance recalling ripe apricot, citrus fruit, and petroleum. The palate is elegantly structured with pronounced stone fruit and mineral character.
