Visiting the oldest german sparkling wine cellar is really nice and enjoyable, especially after tasting some of the very nice sparkling wines. In the shop you will also find a small museum with the history of the wine cellar and on Saturdays go early, because it will be crowded already at 10 am. Very nice courtyard available where to sit...

Visited Kessler on our visit to Esslingen am Neckar. We wanted to try out the oldest sparkling wine in Germany-it was very good, even though I'm not normally a sparkling wine drinker. I may actually get this again. They have a small weingarten in the back (outside) and a couple tables and benches inside the store for you to sit... More

Right off the main square you can find this great place. On a nice day you can walk up to their outdoor Sekt bar and get some great Sekt cocktails. What's not to like?

This is another dinning experience that you hear people rave about and won't be disappointed when you go your self. Fantastic ambiance and meals, excellent wine list and the staff were awesome.

We treated ourselves to a glass of Sekt each on our recent visit to Esslingen. It was Sunday so only the tent was open but the staff were happy to advise on what would suit our varied palettes. Their recommendations were spot on; we went back next morning to by a bottle of each of the three we had sampled.... More

A group of 4 of us visited Kessler and spent a couple of hours trying several different kinds of sparkling wine and cocktails. I always prefer hard liquor and/or cocktails to wine, so the history and reputation of the cellar was a bit lost on me. If you're a huge wine aficionado, you'll likely love this place. The server at... More

My husband and I went randomly during the day and saw everyone on the outdoor patio enjoying a glass of Sekt. We had to take part. We ended up being there for a couple hours enjoying the people and a couple glasses of Sekt. Worth another trip. Enjoy!

The oldest champagne cellar in Germany. Always full with a special charming atmosphere, you can hang out in the bar, have a private wine tasting session or visit the historical cellar. Perfect to drop by around brunch and have a glass of rose champagne.

Visiting Kessler was amazing. I had never heard of it. This is a champagne bar, there are at least 10-15 different types to choose from, ordering in glasses or by the bottle. There are gift bottles in tins or wood crates if your traveling that are well packed. We drank 4 bottles while there, sat on the couches, talked to... More
