August Kesseler assumed control of the family Assmannshausen estate in 1977. He farms about 45 acres of well-positioned vineyards on the right side of the Rhine between Wiesbaden and Mittelrhein in the Rheingau region. Kesseler is one of the few Germans to export his Pinot Noirs to the United States.
Kesseler's Pinot Noirs are among Germany's best, sensibly-priced, and worth a try if you see them.
