Peter Jakob Kühn

This estate has belonged to the Kühn family for over 230 years but it was only when Peter Jakob and his wife Angela took over in the late 1970s that there was a dramatic improvement in quality and in the way of working, developments which were recognised when their Doosberg 1991 won the prize for the best dry Riesling in Germany.

The next stage was conversion to biodynamic viticulture and Demeter certification was achieved in 2004. Today Peter Jakob and his son Peter Bernhard look after 18 hectares of vines situated on gentle slopes running down to the Rhine around the villages of Oestrich and Hallgarten, including the grand cru sites of Doosberg and Hendelberg. Peter Jakob has developed a training system which exposes a much bigger surface area of leaf to the sun and so helps with ripening. Picking is careful and selective with hand selection. Grapes are pressed slowly and the juice is allowed to settle before fermentation begins with natural yeasts and no temperature control. There is extended lees ageing and the top wines are matured in large oak barrels. No fining is used. The principle is always minimal intervention and allowing the wine to find its own way. The results are characterful and intense wines that continue to garner many awards around the world.
