The winery is located in the municipality of Flörsheim-Dalsheim (Wonnegau area) in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. Its origins date back to 1789, when Johann Leonhard Keller, who had emigrated from Switzerland due to the turmoil of the French Revolution, settled in Dalsheim and began to work in agriculture and viticulture. He acquired the four-hectare "Oberer Hubacker" share of the historic site Hubacker, which is still owned by the Abbey and is planted almost exclusively to Riesling with a long-term average yield of 45 hl/ha. In 2000, a six-metre-high natural stone tower was built in this parade plot from the limestones of the site and the region to emphasise its importance. In the family bible, Georg Keller (1841-1820) reports on the special quality of the Hubacker wines. Today, the traditional winery is run by Klaus Keller, son Klaus-Peter and wife Julia. Felix Keller brings in his own ideas after graduating from high school, apprenticeships in viticulture with von Buhl, Emrich-Schönleber, Julian Haart and Bereche in Champagne.
I have great respect for the scope and quality of the wein.plus encyclopaedia. It is a unique place to go for crisp, sound information on terms from the world of wine.Dr. Edgar Müller
