The estate (formerly known as Christoffel-Prüm) is located in the Ürzig municipality (Mittelmosel area) in the German wine-growing region Moselle
, The family has been wine-growing for over 400 years, today it is owned by Karl-Josef Christoffel and his sister-in-law Annekatrin Christoffel-Prüm (brother or husband died in 1995). The name refers to roots in the well-known Bernkasteler wine dynasty Prüm
, The vineyards cover two hectares of vineyards in the individual layers Würzgarten
(Ürzig), as well prelate
(Earth). In the past, parcels in the municipalities of Graach (Domprobst) and Wehlen (Sundial) were also included, but they belonged to the winery SA Prüm
were sold. The vineyards are planted exclusively with ungrafted Riesling sticks. Some of these vines, which are 40 years old on average, have been in production for over 100 years. Together with Joh. Jos. Prüm
was processed until permission was given to be allowed to plant root-safe material. The viticulture is carried out according to traditional methods. These include, for example spontaneous fermentation
in wooden barrels and without beautiful things. Only 20,000 bottles are produced annually. Occasionally, wines are offered back to 1975, which testifies to the longevity. The winery sells its products almost exclusively on the farm, and places little emphasis on marketing.
