Prinz Salm, One of Germany’s Oldest Family Wineries
The Prinz Salm is one of Germany’s oldest family wineries, which has around 800 years of history and tradition. Now in the thirty-second generation, all their traditional values and experience are followed in the winery’s work. Prince Felix runs the winery along with Victoria and is responsible for the reputation of the castle and the production of wines. Felix’s mother belonged to a Franconian wine family and helped his father expand their estate to 18 hectares. His father is the chairman of VDP Germany for 17 years and a respected figure in the wine world. For winemaking, they rely on their traditional methods and combine them with modern technology and equipment to make the best wines.
Perfect Terrain of Dalberg and Wallhausen
Their vineyards in the Nahe lie between Dalberg and Wallhausen. The terrain is perfect, with the vineyards lying on the south-facing steep slopes with a favorable microclimate and soils with a lot of minerals. Although the yield is low, these conditions allow them to grow fruity and healthy grapes. The main grape types that grow here include Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Scheurebe. The best grapes are used to make their famous red, white, sparkling, and dessert wines. The winery is now verified by Fair’n Green that is a seal of sustainability in viticulture. It allows them to preserve the natural surroundings and the health of their vineyards for the future generations. Their distinct wines have a unique taste that reflects the quality of their terroir and their hard work.
