The estate was founded back in 1849 by Franz Peter Buhl (1809-1862) and came about as part of the distribution of the original Jordan estate into the three smaller estates Geheimer Rat Dr. von Bassermann-Jordan, Reichsrat von Buhl and Dr. Deinhard. Within few years, von Buhl was recognized for its uncompromising quality. Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy wrote to a friend after a visit to Reichsrat von Buhl: ""But if you haven’t been to the Buhl estate, you don’t know what Forster Riesling is"". But it wasn't just on a national scale that von Buhl became famous. Von Buhl wines became some of the most expensive wines in the world. Even at the official opening of the Suez Canal in 1869, the guests raised for the toast a glass of Von Buhl Riesling.

From 1989 to 2013 the winery was leased to Japanese business man Toyohiro Tokuoka. In 2005 the winery was sold by the von Guttenberg family to a local business man Achim Niederberger (1957-2013) who knew back then, that he would have to wait eight years before his team could run the estate. Beginning with vintage 2013, the new team around managing director Richard Grosche and technical director Mathieu Kauffmann is responsible for the estate. Reichsrat von Buhl is a member of the German wine growers association for quality wine (VDP). 

The Wachenheimer Riesling dry is a rich wine with various fruit aromas as citrus, crisp apples and hints of peaches. The freh acidity of this wine enhances the fruitiness and makes every glass a unique joy.
