Franz Keller

Refreshing, fruity wines as well as complex, mineral driven and powerful wines. It is no accident that the Schwarzer Adler Restaurant which is Michelin-starred since 1969 also forms part of the Keller estate. Franz Keller was awarded ‘Winery of the Year’ by the Eichelmann 2010 wine guide and Diners Club magazine named him ‘Winemaker of the Year’ in 2009.
A family estate of some 100 acres, Fritz Keller carefully blends a history of wine making tradition with modern technology and methods. More than half of all Franz Keller Schwarzer Adler vineyards are planted to Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris) and Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir), the model varieties of the region. Of course, there also is Weißer Burgunder (Pinot Blanc) and the long underestimated Müller-Thurgau. There are also smaller plantings of Silvaner, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Lemberger (aka Blaufränkisch) - at the Kaiserstuhl these varieties develop interesting and distinct characteristics.
