The Growers > Weingut Keller
‘I make the wines I like to drink,’ says Klaus-Peter Keller, and in the last ten years there has been a considerable shift in style at this estate, moving away from rich, full-bodied wines to lighter, more delicate ones. The key to achieving this is vineyard management: the grapes must not be allowed to get too ripe. Unlike many of his colleagues, he has resisted the temptation to expand: ‘if we enlarged the estate, I would no longer be able to be able to supervise work in the vineyards so closely. The wines would be maybe 3% less good. Perhaps no one would notice, but I would, and I won’t allow it.’ His wines are the epitome of purity, elegance and intensity.
