Eva Fricke

Eva Fricke's vines are all about 40 years old and yields are naturally reduced by the barren soil and rather harsh climate. There are no herbicides or pesticides used and minimal cellar work is done. She is certified organic and converting to biodynamic. The vineyards in Kiedrich and Eltville grow juicy, fruity Rieslings, the soils have loess and clay. The wines are full, rich, floral with great fruit. Further north around Lorch and Lorchhausen the slate and quartzite soils produce wines that have great mineral and saline qualities. These are all estate grown wines of great distinction, purity and grace.

Like many modern producers she has travelled extensively and worked at very different places. During her studies, she worked at Schloss Johannisberg in the Rheingau and in Bordeaux, Piedmont, Ribera del Duero, Australia -- all over the place. After graduation, Eva worked for JB Becker, the for Leitz. She struck out on her own in 2013 and now has her own 11 hectare vineyard in Eltville.
