The Keller winery has been managed by Klaus Peter Keller since 2002 and in this short time has arrived in the Weinolymp with a great deal of passion and a strong family bond.
“Bringing the soil into the glass is the greatest task and the greatest goal for us. With our wines you should taste the location. […] The unmistakable is our goal.” – Klaus Peter Keller
This quote from Klaus Peter Keller is probably related to the fact that he was trained in France, in Burgundy, and there the focus is on individual sites and terroir.
Vineyards like the Westhofener Morstein and the Dalsheimer Hubacker became world-famous thanks to winegrowers like Klaus Peter Keller, because it takes a sensitive human hand to bring a terroir to life.
The talent of a winemaker
The talent of a winemaker can easily be compared to the talent of a star chef. With the exception, of course, that unlike most star chefs, a vintner grows the ingredients for his work in his own vineyard.
Klaus Peter Keller is without question one of the most talented winemakers of our time. This is the reason why his wines have achieved international cult status and wines like the G-Max achieve unprecedented top prices for a dry German Riesling.
Exceptional talents like Klaus Peter Keller can inspire and motivate an entire generation of winegrowers and drive them to peak performance.
Where would the Barbaresco appellation be today without Angelo Gaja? What would Burgundy be without Henri Jayer? And what would Rheinhessen be today without Klaus Peter Keller?
Riesling now has its well-deserved status and, just like at the turn of the millennium, is mentioned in the same breath as the best white wines in the world.
The most fascinating thing about Weingut Keller is probably the ability to play the entire wine keyboard. In addition to monumental, dry Rieslings, great Pinot Noir, fruity sweet and noble sweet wines are also produced at world class level.
With a cultivation area of around 27,000 hectares, Rheinhessen is the largest cultivation area in Germany. The name is somewhat misleading, because the wine-growing region is not in the federal state of Hesse, but in Rhineland-Palatinate. The surrounding mountains protect the wine-growing region from cold north winds and heavy rainfall. In addition, the wide range of climate and soil conditions ensures a rich spectrum of interesting wines, ranging from Riesling and Müller-Thurgau to Dornfelder and Silvaner to Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir.
