Weingut Joh. Jos. Prüm is a German wine grower and producer based in Bernkastel-Wehlen, in the wine-growing region of Mosel, Germany. The Prüm family have had a presence in Wehlen for over 400 years. The estate was founded in 1911 by Johann Josef Prüm, after the splitting up of the S.A Prum winery. In 1920, Johann Josef’s son, Sebastian, started working for the estate. Robert M. Parker, Jr. says that the estate’s reputation was largely built by Sebastian and that he “developed the distinct style of the Prüm wines during the 1930s and 1940s”. Sebastian died in 1969 and his sons, Dr Manfred Prüm and his younger brother Wolfgang Prüm took over. Manfred has been working with his daughter Dr Katharina Prüm since 2003. Manfred Prüm was named German Winemaker of the Year in 1996 by the Gault Millau Guide to German Wines.
