Wehlen is one of the best-known villages in Germany's Mosel wine region, known for its Riesling wines.

It is particularly associated with the Sonnenuhr (sundial) vineyard, classified as a Grosse Lage by the VDP. This looms over the village as part of a long, steep wall of prestigious vineyards on the opposite bank of the Mosel running from Bernkastel to Zeltingen-Rachtig. The very pure Devonian blue slate of Sonnenuhr is said to contribute a lively, focused minerality to the wine.

The village’s other vineyards are Rosenberg, a narrow strip directly above Würzgarten, and Nonnenberg, a partially-planted expanse above the town and facing Würzgarten. A further group of vineyards face Zeltingen-Rachtig; the winery of Markus Molitor - known for gaining 100-point ratings for three of his 2013 wines from critic Robert Parker - is also located here. There are around 20 producers based in Wehlen itself, the best known of which is Weingut Joh. Jos. Prüm.
