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:
