The winery is located in the municipality of Bernkastel-Graach (Bernkastel area) in the German wine-growing region of Mosel. The Kees family is already in its 12th generation of winegrowing. It was initially located in Kinheim until the grandfather of the current owners married into the Kieren family in Graach. Since 1980, it has been run by Ernst-Josef and Werner Kees. A guesthouse is attached. The vineyards cover almost six hectares of vines in the single vineyard sites Treppchen (Erden), Domprobst and Himmelreich (Graach), Paulinshofberger (Kesten), as well as Hubertuslay and Rosenberg (Kinheim). More than 80% of the vineyards are planted with Riesling, the rest with Müller-Thurgau, Kerner and Pinot Noir. As early as 1985, the estate was awarded the Innovation Prize for Agriculture for its grape reception system. The grapes are harvested late into November with selective manual harvesting in up to four stages.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
