The estate was originally founded by Himmerod monastery in the Eifel region and for over 175 years in
the possession of the family of winemakers Licht and is led by
Rainer Licht for over 25 years.
For the first time it is mentioned in 1152 in papal documents. Thus, the vineyard of the monastery of the Cistercian winery has witnessed more than 850 years ago.
In 1716 we learn more details: the wine-growing branch in Kesten is structurally renovated and then automatically run as winery, farm and wine bar. The wine bar serves above all pilgrims on their way to Cologne.
