The winery is located in the village of Niederfell in the German wine-growing region Moselle, It goes back to the founded in 1711 winery of the princes of the Leyen. The name derives from the local saint Lubentius (a pupil of the Martin of Tours ), who was missionary in the 4th century in Kobern on the Moselle. When the former owners found no successor, the estate was taken over in 1994 by law student Andreas Barth as a newcomer. In July 2007, the WeinWerkstatt, built in modern architecture, was put into operation, which serves as a representative building. In 2010, the "Architecture Award Wine" was awarded for it. The vineyards cover four hectares of vines in the layers Gäns and Schlossberg (Gondorf), Kahllay (Niederfell) and Schlossberg, Uhlen and Weissenberg (Kobern). These are exclusively steep slopes that can only be managed by hand.

They are 90% Riesling (the part ungrafted cultivated), as well as Pinot Noir planted. It becomes more natural, sustainable Viticulture with, for example, abandonment insecticides and herbicides according to certified rules of Fair'n Green practiced. Yields are reduced to 30 to 40 hectoliters per hectare. The fermentation takes place with natural yeasts with very long fermentation times between 150 and 250 days. Beautiful and repeated filtration is omitted. In suitable years, high prizes such as Eiswein vinified. It also produces bottled fermented sparkling wine. Since 2004 Andreas Barth has been cellar master and since 2010 managing director of the Saar winery Othegraven responsible in the municipality Kanzem.
