The Kühn family has been involved in winemaking for centuries. The estate, which dates back to the 18th century, has been passed down from generation to generation. Under the leadership of Peter Jakob Kühn, the estate underwent a transition to organic and biodynamic agricultural practices. This move reflects a commitment to sustainable viticulture and a holistic approach to grape growing.

Like many top German winemakers, Peter Jakob Kühn places a strong emphasis on Riesling. Riesling is known for its ability to express terroir and can produce wines that range from dry to sweet. Kühn follows a philosophy of minimal intervention in the winemaking process. The aim is to express the true character of the grape and the vineyard in the final wines. The estate follows biodynamic principles in the vineyards. Biodynamics involves treating the vineyard as a self-sustaining ecosystem, taking into account lunar cycles and natural preparations to improve soil and plant health. Kühn often uses natural or spontaneous fermentation using native yeasts. This can contribute to the complexity and unique character of the wines. Kühn produces a range of single-vineyard wines that showcase the individual characteristics of specific locations. The estate is known for making both dry and sweet Rieslings, catering to a spectrum of preferences. Wines from Peter Jakob Kühn have received high praise from critics and have been awarded awards for their quality and expression of terroir.

The Namesake is a historic sandstone statue of Sinterklaas, which stands next to the vineyard and blesses it. The plot slopes gently southwards and allows the view to flow over the Rhine, only 150 meters away. Here the Rhine acts as a heat reservoir and solar reflector. In spring, this results in significantly earlier bud formation, creating an exceptionally long growth and ripening period. Vines older than 60 years produce very few bunches with small berries and a complex and intensive aroma. From the banks of the Rhine and grown on sandy loess soils with a high chalk content. In the mouth this is a dry Riesling that is pure and fine with a lot of complexity. It provides quite a bit of salt with fine tannins, in short, a stunningly concentrated and long-lasting Riesling.
