VDP:What is so special about your winery?
Klaus-Peter Keller: We are a small family business with top vineyard sites. Three generations live under one roof and are inspired by the same idea: bringing the taste of the individual vineyard into the bottle. This makes us happy because we like to drink it ourselves.
VDP:What is your winery philosophy?
Klaus-Peter Keller: We are happy, but never satisfied!
VDP:For what wine style do you strive?
Klaus-Peter Keller: Vibrant, elegant wines with finesse that carry the imprint of their origin and soil.
VDP:Which of your wines would you recommend to someone who does not yet know your winery – as an introduction, so to speak?
Klaus-Peter Keller: A Riesling with pronounced limestone character, the ‘von der Fels’.
VDP:Of which wine are you particularly proud?
Klaus-Peter Keller: Of each and every one.
VDP:Why did you become a vintner?
Klaus-Peter Keller: Because it is the most beautiful and varied profession in the world.
VDP:Do you have role models or mentors?
Klaus-Peter Keller: There are several. Charles Rousseau in Gevrey, Romain Lignier in Morey and, of course, Hans-Günter Schwarz from Neustadt.
VDP:What are your next goals?
Klaus-Peter Keller: To integrate the ideas of the next generation into the company.
VDP:How do you combine tradition and innovation?
Klaus-Peter Keller: We are very open to anything that can be improved. If it makes sense, of course we also stick to traditions.
