single vineyard in the municipality of Flörsheim-Dalsheim (Wonnegau area) in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. The origin of the vineyard name goes back to 1490, when "Huffe" meant a unit of measurement for a piece of land of a certain size - later it became "Hube". The south to south-east facing vineyards at 190 to 220 metres above sea level with a slope of 25 to 30% cover 35 hectares of vineyards. The soils consist of skeleton-rich loess, clay marl, limestone rock, sandy loam and slightly stony loamy clay. They benefit from an excellent microclimate in the wind and rain shadow of the Donnersberg. The southeast-facing "Oberer Hubacker" parcel covers four hectares. In 2000, the Keller family erected a 6.5-metre-high stone tower with a diameter of 4.2 metres made of limestone with a bronze plaque in honour of Hedwig Keller (1948-2000). At the end facing the Rhine is a pillar with a sandstone plaque bearing the name of the vineyard. The Riesling, Müller-Thurgau and Blauer Portugieser varieties are grown here. Shares in the site are held, for example, by the wineries Keller Klaus (in sole ownership of "Oberer Hubacker") and Schales.
