The winery "Julius Wasem & Sons" is located in the community Ingelheim (area Bingen ) in the German wine-growing region Rheinhessen, For the first time, the Wasem family was already operating viticulture in 1726. In the 17th century, the outbuildings were the seat of the noble family Knight Hundt von Saulheim and his wife Katharina, b. from Rodenstein. The foundation stone for today's operation was laid in 1912 by Julius Wasem (1894-1972), who set up the winery in the old noble residence in Ober-Ingelheim and was the first producer to bottle and market his wines himself. Among other things, he was a board member of the German Winegrowing Association and co-founder of the German Wine Label for Rheinhessen. In 1963 he handed over the farm to his sons Gerhard and Jochen. Today he is led in the third generation by their sons Holger and Burkhard Wasem. Attached are a wine bar and a wine hotel, run by their wives Ilona and Karin Wasem.
