The winery is located in the village of Niederfell in the German wine-growing region Moselle, It goes back to the winery founded in 1711 by the Dukes of Leyen. The name derives from the local saint Lubentius (a pupil of the Martin from 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 commissioned, which serves as a representative building. In 2010, the "Architecture Prize Wine" was awarded for this.
