The estate "Schloss Proschwitz - Prinz zur Lippe" is located in Zadel (district of Diera-Zehren) over Meissen in the German wine-growing region Saxony, It is the largest private winery in East Germany and the oldest still existing in Saxony. The family to the lip belongs to the oldest noble houses Germany. Until 1918, she was one of the ruling princely houses and was one of the most important entrepreneurial families in Saxony. The Proschwitz vineyards were from the middle of the twelfth century until the Reformation in the possession of the Bishop of Meissen. A large part of those needed in Saxony measuring wines came at this time from the Proschwitzer estate. During the GDR era, the vineyards were managed by the former Agricultural Production Cooperative (LPG). The wines were as so-called "Bückware" only under the counter and were called "Proschwitzer Katzensprung". After the family was expropriated to the lip by the Russian occupiers, Dr. Georg Prinz zur Lippe after the turn in 1989, large parts of the winery and the family castle located in close proximity to the vineyards back. Finally, the estate moved in 2000 the elaborately restored 300-year-old Vierseithof in Zadel on Meissen. Here you will find the state-of-the-art winery, a ten-room guesthouse and two apartments, the own wine shop and a restaurant.

The vineyards cover a total of 87 hectares of vineyards. This is with 51 acres largely the single-owned single layer castle Proschwitz. The south to southwest aligned vineyards in 150 to 170 meters above sea level with 10 to 25% slope are located above a quarry of the Elbe Valley along the river bank overlooking the world famous porcelain city of Meissen. The soils consist of the region's typical red granite rocks with loess layers up to six meters high. The remaining portion is the individual layers Heinrichsburg (Seußlitz) and since the year 2008 in monopoly ownership located Kloster-Heilig-Kreuz (Meissen). 80% of the white grape varieties Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Riesling, Elbling, Traminer, Scheurebe and Goldriesling, and 20% of the red varieties Spätburgunder and Dornfelder are cultivated. The cultivation of the vineyard is carried out according to the guidelines of the "environmentally friendly viticulture" with for example greening, greatly reduced use of pesticides and strictly metered fertilization, The in-house "Meißner Spezialitätenbrennerei" processes regional fruit varieties into noble fires, spirits and liqueurs. It also produces bottle-fermented sect. The company was founded in 1996 as the first Saxon winery in the VDP (Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter).
