The famous Prüm family of winegrowers from the community of Bernkastel-Wehlen in the German Moselle wine region has a long history, which goes back at least to the 16th century. One of the first mentioned in a document was Gerhardus Hermann Prüm (1169-1229), but no direct line of descent can be found. The first genealogically provable ancestor Peter Prüm came from St. Goar to Wehlen. Sebastian Alois Prüm (1794-1871) is considered the progenitor of today's winegrowing families. He married Maria Anna Ehsius in 1821. Of the seven sons, only Mathias (1835-1890), who owned one of the larger vineyards on the Middle Mosel, married again. Mathias Prüm and Katharina (née Kieren) had six children. In 1911 the estate was divided among them and a number of well-known wineries were subsequently established.
