Raimund Prüm, Owner, S.A. Prüm
Raimund Prüm owned and managed S.A. Prüm winery in Germany’s Mosel region for over 45 years (until July 1, 2017). Under Raimund’s guidance, the estate – established by his grandfather over a century ago is one of the Mosel’s brightest stars and Germany’s most prestigious wineries. A founding, active member of the VDP, the Association of German Premium Wineries, Raimund is a staunch supporter of measures that preserve the integrity of his region and a tireless advocate of eco-friendly practices. An unmistakable figure, Raimund stands tall at 6’4” – though not quite as tall as his grandfather Sebastian Alois (S.A.) Prüm, who was over 6’9”. His brilliant red hair is instantly recognizable and has earned him nicknames such as Raimund the Red, Red Baron and der Specht (woodpecker), to which he good-naturedly answers. A big grin and a small bow tie are among his other trademarks. In July of 2017, Raimund Prüm passed the torch to the next generation with the appointment of his daughter, Saskia Andrea Prüm as the winery’s new leader, the first woman to ever stand at its helm. Raimund’s wife, Pirjo Oksanen Prüm, holds a Wine & Spirits Education Trust Diploma, and acts as the estate’s sommelier.
