About the Winery

When August Kesseler took over his parents' establishment, which was founded in 1924, he was only 19 years old. Traditionally, mostly bulk wine was produced and the vineyard area was just over six acres. Today, under August's guidance, the estate has become one of the flagship producers of the Rheingau area and has also acquired a high international reputation. The estate spans 80 acres of vineyards located in some of the best Rheingau sites, such as Assmannshäuser Höllenberg, Rüdesheim Berg, Schlossberg, Lorchhäuser Seligmacher, Hattenheimer Wisselbrunnen, and many more. They produce 60% Riesling and 40% Pinot Noir and 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 world-class wines. For several years August Kesseler and especially Max Himstedt have been joined by another ambitious and young oenologist, Simon Batarseh. Together with the entire team, Simon will lead the estate into the future. Thus, the course is set to keep producing quality wines at the highest level.
