Eva Fricke is a superstar of the Rheingau, with her 13 hectare estate, that she only started in 2006. Not from winemaking stock - both her parents are doctors - she only discovered an interest in wine, and more specifically farming, when she did an internship at Buitenverwachting in South Africa at the age of 18. She’s worked at numerous top estates, from Chateau Cissac to Schloss Johannisberg, from Pingus to Castello di Verduno, before settling down as operations manager at Leitz from 2004 to 2011. Since then she’s been fully committed to her own project. She’s seeking out parcels of vines that date from before 1970, because this was when systemic treatment was started: she wants as good a working environment as possible. These are dry Rieslings that stun with their focus and texture: they’re some of the most soulful, expressive wines coming out of Germany today.
