After the division of the original Prüm estate, Anna Prüm, the youngest of the Mathias Prüm children and her husband Dr. F. Weins, used this inheritance to establish the Dr. F. Weins-Prüm estate. Worth seeing is the cross-vaulted cellar which forms the foundation of today’s manor house built in 1924.
Dr. F. Weins-Prüm is the smallest estate in our portfolio, but the wines are anything but small. In fact the Wehlener and Graacher Rieslings from the estate rival those of his neighbor, Joh. Jos. Prüm. They are more subtle, much like the person producing them, the very reserved Bert Selbach. Mr. Selbach is a former banker, who took charge of the estate on 7/1/1978. His wines have amazing aging potential and every bottle is truly “hand-made”.
Producing a miniscule 3,000 cases annually, the majority of wines are sourced from the following vineyards: Wehlener Sonnenuhr – slate based, compact and stony: the Graacher Himmelreich also slate but deeper soils (great water maintenance) and the Graacher Domprobst which forms the transition from the Himmelreich to the Sonnenuhr. The estate also owns a small part of the great Erdener Prälat which often produces the” wine of the vintage” at the estate.
The Dr. F. Weins-Prüm Estate is a member of the VDP.
