Visitors of the Moselle region should consider visiting Kastanienhof wine-growing estate in Kesten. The steep slopes around Kesten have been cultivated with great passion for several generations by the Esseln family. Their aim is to reconcile tradition with modern production technology, while at the same time treating nature with care. They share a strong love of the Riesling vine, because it thrives ideally on the prolific slate floors. In consideration of soil and location, sorts like Rivaner, Kerner, Weißburgunder and Bachus are also grown. In addition to these white wines, rosé and red wines like Pinot Noir, Dornfelder and Regent; Secco and sparkling wines are offered to visitors.
