When August Kesseler took over his parents’ establishment founded in 1924, he was only 19-years-old. Back then, mainly bulk wine was produced and the area covered was not larger than 6.18 acres. Under August Kesseler’s guidance the estate has become one of the flagship ones of the Rheingau area. Down to the present day it has also acquired a high international reputation. Today the vineyard estate contains 55.6 acres in some of the best Rheingau sites like: Assmannshauser Hollenberg, Rudesheimer Berg Schlossberg, Rudesheimer Bischofsberg, Rudesheimer Berg Roseneck and Lorcher Schlossberg. We produce 60 % Riesling and 40 % Pinot Noir. We are a member of the VDP and the German Barrique-Forum. Max Himstedt is the estate’s most experienced and ambitious winemaker who pushes forward the production of word class wines. For the past couple of years, August Kesseler, and particularly Max Himstedt, have been joined by another ambitious and young oenologist, Simon Batarseh. With August and Max and the rest of the team, Simon will lead the estate into the future. Thus, the course is set to keep producing quality wines at the highest stage.
