Fritz Keller, from Oberbergen in the Kaiserstuhl, is one of the most famous and respected German winemakers and restaurateurs, who also enjoys a great international reputation.
His “Schwarzer Adler” gourmet restaurant is an institution and has been rated with 17 points in the “Gault & Millau Restaurant Guide” for many years. In addition, Fritz Keller sells great wines from Bordeaux and Burgundy, which are also offered on the wine lists of his three family-run restaurants. After his presidency at Bundesliga football club SC Freiburg, he was elected president of the German Football Association.
