The famous Prüm wine-growing family from the municipality of Bernkastel-Wehlen in the German wine-growing region Moselle has a long history that goes back at least to the 16th century. Gerhardus Hermann Prüm (1169-1229) was one of the first to be mentioned, but no direct lineage can be found. The first genealogically proven ancestor Peter Prüm came from St. Goar to Wehlen. Sebastian Alois Prüm (1794-1871) is considered the progenitor of today's wine-growing families. He married Maria Anna Ehsius in 1821. Of the seven sons, only Mathias (1835-1890) married, who owned one of the larger wineries on the Middle Moselle. Mathias Prüm and Katharina (née Kieren) had six children. The estate was divided among these in 1911 and a number of well-known wineries were subsequently created.
Most of the inheritance called SA Prüm received Sebastian Alois Prüm (1877-1959), named after his grandfather. The two wineries also came from this line Jos. Christoffel jr. and mustard. Johann Josef Prüm (1873-1944) named his inheritance Joh. Jos. Prüm, The estate then went from the inheritance of Peter Prüm (1881-1970) through a merger Studert-Prüm out. Anna Maria Prüm (1887-1926) married Dr. Franz Weins, from which the winery Dr. F. Weins-Prüm resulted. Maria Anna Prüm (1875-1904) married Zacharias Bergweiler (1861-1934). Grandchildren are Ernst Loosen, who runs the winery Dr. Loosen leads, as well as Wilhelm Weil, director of the Robert winery Because, After the early death of his first wife Maria Anna, Bergweiler married her sister Maria Katharina Prüm (1884-1954); this led to the winery Dr. Pauly-Bergweiler out. The four goods are on Uferallee in Wehlen Joh. Jos. Prüm. SA Prüm. Studert-Prüm and Dr. F. Weins-Prüm side by side.
In 1842 Jodocus Prüm (1807-1876), brother of the progenitor Sebastian Alois Prüm (1794-1871), built sundials in the vineyards of Wehlen and Zeltingen. He did not want to create site names, but to make it easier for the winegrowers to orientate themselves. The names Wehlener and Zeltinger are derived from this sundial from.
