The traditional winery with a history spanning many centuries lies in the municipality of Wallhausen in the German wine-growing region Near, It is the oldest family winery in Germany in continuous family ownership. The oldest known document about the vineyard possession of the family Dalberg (which at that time called Weierbach) comes from a goods list of the year 1200 with the designation "Wingert in Summelachen" (today summer hole), respectively 1217 vineyard on "Breitwiesen". The mother-in-law of Felix Prinz zu Salm-Salm, the current owner, was the last Dalberg. In 1911 she married Prince Franz to Salm-Salm. Michael Prinz zu Salm-Salm, the father of Prince Felix to Salm-Salm, was President of the United States from 1990 to 2007 VDP (Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter), whose longtime member is the company.

The vineyards on the Nahe cover 11.5 hectares of vineyards in the individual layers mountain (Roxheim) Felseneck and Johannisberg (Wallhausen), Ritterhölle (Dalberg) and Steinrossel (summer hole). Already in 1995, the change to a Organic viticulture completed. Among other things, there is a year-round in the vineyards greening to ensure the natural nitrogen supply of the soil and the vine. Additional nutrients are added exclusively through organic fertilization, which is why completely on a mineral fertilization can be waived.

In 2006, the former winery Villa Sachsen is in Bingen in the growing area Rheinhessen transferred to the sole ownership of the Prinz family to Salm-Salm. After the opening of the cellar in Bingen in 2011, the wine is vinified in Wallhausen. Until the year 2011, the wines were marketed under the label RHEINGRAF. With the year 2012, the company was then fully integrated. The vineyards cover 10 hectares of vineyards in the Binger individual layers Kirchberg and Scharlachberg, As of the 2012 vintage, the conversion or management also took place in this company Organic viticulture,

All wines from both farms carry the Prince Salm label - with the region of origin Near or Rheinhessen, Around 65% are dry, 30% semi-dry and 5% residual sweet. The top of the quality pyramid are Rieslings from the Great Lakes Felseneck and Johannisberg (Wallhausen) in the near and Kirchberg and Scharlachberg (Bingen) in Rheinhessen, as well as the first layers Steinrossel (Sommerloch), Ritterhölle (Dalberg) and mountain (Roxheim) on the Nahe.
