The winery (formerly known as Christoffel-Prüm) is located in the municipality of Ürzig (Central Moselle area) in the German Moselle
wine region. The family has been growing wine for over 400 years, today it is owned by Karl-Josef Christoffel and his sister-in-law Annekatrin Christoffel-Prüm (brother and husband died in 1995). The name refers to roots in the famous Bernkasteler winegrowing dynasty Prüm
. The vineyards comprise two hectares of vines in the individual locations of Würzgarten
(Ürzig), as well as Prälat
(Erden). In the past, plots in the municipalities of Graach (Domprobst) and Wehlen (Sonnenuhr) were also included, but these were sold to the S. A. Prüm
winery. The vineyards are exclusively planted with ungrafted Riesling vines. These vines are on average 40 years old and some of them have been in production for over 100 years. Together with Joh. Jos. Prüm
, processes were carried out until permission was granted to plant root-true material. The viticulture is carried out according to traditional methods. This includes, for example, spontaneous fermentation
in wooden barrels and the renunciation of Schönen. Only 20,000 bottles are produced annually. Occasionally wines are offered back to 1975, which testifies to their longevity. The winery sells its products almost exclusively on the farm and places little emphasis on marketing.
