Top German Rieslings from this Rheingau star
Fricke (pictured above) was for a long time winemaker at
Leitz, one of the best known Rheingau wineries. She began her own
project while still employed there, making 300 litres of wine in
2006. She's now grown this to the point that it’s her main job
(she left Leitz in 2011), and makes a range of Rieslings from her
winery in Keidrich. Most of the sites Eva works with are in Lorch,
but last year she got hold of some plots of vines in Keidrich. She
rents vineyards, but has bought a couple too, and she work
agent is Fields, Morris & Verdin
