The estate is located in the Niederfell municipality in the German wine-growing region Moselle, It goes back to the prince von der Leyen winery founded in 1711. The name derives from the local saint Lubentius (a student of the Martin of Tours ), who was missionary in Kobern on the Moselle in the 4th century.
