The winery (formerly known as Christoffel-Prüm) is located in the municipality of Ürzig (Mittelmosel area) in the German wine-growing region of Mosel. The family has been growing grapes for over 400 years, and today it is owned by Karl-Josef Christoffel and his sister-in-law Annekatrin Christoffel-Prüm (brother and husband respectively died in 1995). The name refers to roots in the well-known Bernkastel winegrowing dynasty of Prüm. The vineyards cover two hectares of vines in the single vineyards Würzgarten (Ürzig), as well as Prälat and Treppchen (Erden). In the past, parcels in the communities of Graach (Domprobst) and Wehlen (Sonnenuhr) were also included, but these were sold to the S. A. Prüm winery. The vineyards are planted exclusively with ungrafted Riesling vines. Some of these vines, which are on average 40 years old, have been in production for over 100 years. Together with Joh. Jos. Prüm, litigation continued until permission was granted to plant unrooted material. The vineyards are cultivated according to traditional methods. These include, for example, spontaneous fermentation in wooden barrels and the renunciation of fining. Only 20,000 bottles are produced annually. Occasionally, wines dating back to 1975 are offered, which testifies to their longevity. The winery sells its products almost exclusively at the farm gate and attaches little importance to marketing
