The wines keep constant high level and are usually the best in their respective category in the area. Weaknesses, there is little, but can occur in difficult vintages. However, this must be balanced in good years with particularly compelling assortments so that an operation can hold the status. In most cases you can blindly buy.

The winery is embedded in the historic town centre of Oestrich in the German Rheingau wine region. It has been in family ownership since 1759. The traditional business is named after the grandfather of the current owner, Désirée Eser Freifrau zu Knyphausen (Dipl. Ing. for viticulture and oenology), who is already the tenth generation to run the business. She is supported by her husband Dodo Freiherr zu Knyphausen. The company is committed to regular sponsoring of various target groups such as the promotion of art and culture, medical research, environmental protection, child and youth work and club work. The entire production takes place under the aspect of sustainability and energy saving measures. The hot water preparation, heating, as well as the power generation work with solar support.

Eser August - Keller

The vineyards cover 11 hectares of vines in 17 individual locations, making it possible to produce wines from the various terroirs of the Rheingau. The most important sites, all classified as First Crop and Great Crop, are Doosberg and Lenchen (Oestrich), Siegelsberg (Erbach), Rothenberg (Rauenthal), Hasensprung and Jesuit Garden (Winkel), as well as Nussbrunnen and Wisselbrunnen (Hattenberg). They are 95% Riesling and 5%Pinot Noir (Spätburgunder). The winegrowing is practised in a natural, environmentally friendly way. This includes permanent greening and the renunciation of pesticides to control animal pests. Only physiologically ripe and healthy grapes are harvested by hand. A vine sponsorship for five or ten years can be concluded with an annual bottle of Riesling.

The production is carried out with strict quality, harvest quantity and grape variety standards. The aim is to produce aromatic and full-bodied wines, which is achieved by temperature-controlled fermentation. In the approx. 300-year-old wooden barrel vaulted cellar dating from 1650 (the oldest barrel dates from 1898), the wines are aged in a combination of stainless steel and wood. The product range includes Rieslings in a predominantly dry style as well as residual sweet wines up to the Trockenbeerenauslese. Among the premium wines are the VDP.Grosse Gewächse as well as the Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) aged in traditional German wooden barrels and . Bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced. The winery has been a member of the VDP (Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter - Association of German Prädikat Wineries) since 1973, as well as the Charta Rheingau, Rheingauer Jungwinzer and Vinissima associations.
