The "Peter Jakob Kühn" winery is located in the municipality of Oestrich in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. It was founded in 1786 by Jacobus Kühn. Today, the estate is run by Peter Bernhard Kühn and his wife Viktoria, already the 12th generation of the family. The vineyards comprise 21 hectares of vines in the single vineyards Doosberg, Klosterberg and Lenchen (Oestrich), St. Nikolaus (Mittelheim), as well as Hendelberg and Jungfer (Hallgarten). They are 95% planted with Riesling, the rest mainly with Pinot Noir. Since 2004, the vineyards have been cultivated according to the rules of biodynamic viticulture; since 2009, they have been certified organic by the DEMETER association. This includes the supply of organic compost, a cover crop with various flower, grass and herb seeds as well as the use of medicinal herb extracts as sprays. Through 100% selective hand harvesting, spontaneous fermentation and natural ageing, powerful, mineral wines are vinified. The white wines are predominantly dry. However, there are also noble sweet Prädikat wines.
