The Riesling interprets the Rheingau terroir expressively and elegantly. The vines in our vineyards are old, some have been on our steep slopes for 70 years. Naturally limited by soil and old vines and selected by hand, the highest quality of our wines is our claim.
Eva Fricke’s path to wine is exceptional: born in Bremen, Eva settled in Rheingau where she leads her own 11 ha domaine.
Work experiences in France, Australia, Italy and Spain influence Eva’s work still today. Nearly 80% of our production is sold worldwide in over 20 markets. Our wines enjoy the highest international esteem and are listed on the menus of some of the world’s best restaurants and luxury hotels. Chefs and sommeliers who follow sustainable concepts especially appreciate our wines and philosophy.
The specific characteristics of each site, partially very old vines and nature create the base for our wines each year. The absence of herbicides and pesticides were always part of the philosophy. Cellar work is reduced to a minimum of interference. Our viticulture and winemaking follow the guidelines of organic and vegan standards with certification.
We work our old, steep-sloped vineyards by hand only. Strict selection of grapes, gentle pressing und pure vinfication allow us to elaborate expressive, lively and natural wines that stand for their terroir and vintage.
Wine plays a historical role in the Rheingau region, and old vineyards feature prominently in the modern landscape along the Rhine river. Re-cultivating old sites as well as restoring and maintaining old vineyards and the traditional landscape of the UNESCO World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley are all parts of our philosophy.
Our wines are rated and reviewed regularly by national and international press:
2013: Eva’s winery was named “Newcomer of the Year” by the gourmet magazine Falstaff.
2013: The international wine magazine Fine named Weingut Eva Fricke “the best startup.”
2015: Leading German newspaper the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung awarded Eva “Aufsteiger-Winzer des Jahres” (newcomer winemaker of the year).
2016: Stuart Pigott named Eva “The Riesling Heroine 2016”.
2017: The German Gourmet Magazine Feinschmecker upgraded Evas wines to 4,5F and named them amongst the best from the region.
Internationally, several outstanding ratings by international wine journalists such as Robert Parker, Jancis Robinson and James Suckling confirm our philosophy and the quality of our hard work.
Riesling and the Rheingau region belong together. We mainly grow Riesling, which we consider predisposed to best express the wonderful diversity of the Rheingaus’ terroir.
Our philosophy is simple and pure: clear and concentrated wines that reveal the nuances of nature, soil and vintage!
The estate wines express a blend of all the soils that the Rheingau has to offer. Our village wines show the amazing differences that the very different soils and microclimates found in the upper and lower Rheingau can produce. Our single vineyard wines make up the top of our portfolio with the highest fruit concentrations, fruit expressions and densities.
iticulture and vinification follow ecological standards since 2011 and vegan aspects since 2015. Our wines are registered by The Vegan Society and in July 2016 the domaine entered the EU-biocertification process.
