Single location in the municipality of Flörsheim-Dalsheim (Wonnegau area) in the German Rheinhessen growing region. 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 vineyards, which are oriented to the south to south-east at an altitude of 190 to 220 metres above sea level with a slope of 25 to 30%, comprise 35 hectares of vineyard area. The soils consist of skeletal 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 "Oberer Hubacker" parcel facing southeast covers four hectares. In 2000 the Keller family built 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 there is a pillar with a sandstone plaque bearing the name of the site. The varieties Riesling, Müller-Thurgau and Blauer Portugieser are cultivated. Shares in the vineyard are held, for example, by the vineyards Keller Klaus (solely owned by "Oberer Hubacker") and Schales.
