Esslingen is known beyond the region's borders for its long tradition of winegrowing. It was precisely these vineyards that attracted Georg Christian Kessler to Esslingen in 1826, where he founded the Kessler sparkling wine cellar. Today, Kessler is Germany's oldest sparkling wine producer and still makes its sparkling delights according to the "Méthode traditionelle". On a tour through the impressive cellar vaults you will learn everything about the fine drink and of course you can also try a sip or two.
