The two vineyards we harvest for Landgeflecht belong to the vineyardsite of Oestrich Doosberg. Our ancestors knew very early from the special quality of these vineyards, so that they braided loppings from a pasturage to fence them. So the vineyards were protected of game and burglary. The vineyards comprise slight southern leaned slopes. The soil is made up of a mixture of loessially and clayey loam which is nerved by grey Quartzite. The gravels date from the past ( about 60 million years ago) when at that time the riverbed of the Rhine has had a huge extenison up to an elevation of 120 meter above sea level. The supplies of water is perfect. The roots of the vines don’t suffer from drought and supply the grapes with enough water.
Powerful and dense the wine reflects the concentrated minerally structure of its soil.
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.
