Stock & Stein translates into “the vine and the stone”, both are essential for producing great wine. Produced by Peter-Jakob Kuhn, Stock and Stein defines the relationship between these elements. Organically farmed, Peter-Jakob expresses the balance of freshness and mineral tones of this region. Through the stone, the aristocratic aromatics and elegance peer through and convey its place through the vine, its fruit and finally the bottle. It’s this care that Peter-Jakob wants to depict through a wine that can be accessible to everyone.
|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.
