This vineyard lies on a soft southern slope only 150 m from the border of Rhine. Here the Rhine is very wide (around 1000 m) and serves as a reservoir of solar radiation causing this parcel to have one of the best microclimatic conditions in the Rheingau. St. Nikolaus Riesling ripe and abundant “wild” fruit followed by fine and spicy floral flavors and an extremely mineral and extensive length- an intriguing Riesling from an extraordinary vineyard!
The winery was founded by Jacobus Kuhn in 1786. Today, Peter Jakob represents the eleventh generation of winemakers in the family. The Kuhns organically cultivate 18 hectares of land spread throughout the town of Oestrich applying biodynamic methods. The vineyards are planted on natural south-facing slopes along the Right Bank of the Rhein at an altitude of 70 meters, and are well protected against the cool borealis by the foothills of the Taunus Mountains. A member of the VDP, an exclusive organization of the top 200 growers in Germany dedicated to quality production of indigenous variety, Peter Jakob Kuhn is at the forefront of winemaking today in Germany. Greatly treasured by the German public, his wines are very sought after for their expression of terroir. These are hand-worked wines that count among the best in Rheingau and in all of Germany.
