The winery is located in the municipality of Kasel (Ruwertal area) in the German wine-growing region of Mosel. The family winegrowing tradition was founded in 1670 by Peter Christian Nell, who was ennobled by Emperor Joseph I (1678-1711) in 1709 for his services. In 1804, Napoleon Bonaparte visited Trier and stayed as a guest of the Nell family. Under Oskar von Nell, the wine estate with a chalk cellar was built in Kasel in 1890. Among the "greats of this world" who drank the wines of the House of Nell were, in addition to the French Emperor, the Russian Tsar Nicholas II, US President Gerald Ford, Mao Zedong, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and President François Mitterrand. During state visits and world economic summits, the German government under the various chancellors repeatedly served their guests wines from the house.
