The winery is located in the municipality of Deidesheim in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. It emerged from a hereditary division of the Jordan estate. In 1849, Jordan's son-in-law Franz Peter Buhl (1809-1862) inherited a large part. The inheritance was carried on by his son Franz Armand Buhl (1837-1896), and under his leadership the estate achieved international fame for its Rieslings. Highest awards were won at world exhibitions (Paris) and events. At that time, Buhl wines were among the most expensive in the world. In 1869, the opening of the Suez Canal was toasted with a Buhl Riesling. The German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck (1815-1898) was a great lover of Buhl wines and his quote "This monster tastes monstrous to me" made the Forster Ungeheuer vineyard world famous. The winery received its current name from Reichsrat Franz Eberhard von Buhl (1867-1921), the third generation to run it. After Franz Eberhard's death, his wife Frieda Pieper von Buhl continued to run the business. After the death of the childless widow, it was inherited by Reichsfreiherr Karl Theodor von und zu Guttenberg.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
