It is a rather unusual story that describes Eva Fricke’s journey to wine. Firstly, she has no family connection to viticulture; her parents are doctors. Secondly, she does not come from a wine region, but from the North of Germany. However, more than 20 years ago the Bremen native found her home in the Rheingau and embarked on an impressive path that eventually led to her own start-up winery in 2011.

Today Eva Fricke runs a 17-hectare domaine with tasting room in Eltville. Among her customers are international award-winning chefs and luxury hotels such as Das Kronenschlösschen in Hattenheim, Lafleur in Frankfurt, Fontenay in Hamburg, Dallmayr in Munich, Johannes King on Sylt, Esszimmer in the BWM Welt Munich, Restaurant Haubentaucher in Rottach-Egern, Søllerød Kro and Alchemist in Denmark, the Steirereck in Vienna, Leroy and Clove Club London, Atomix and Daniel New York, Atelier Crenn and Single Thread Farms San Francisco, the Park Hyatt in Beijing, W-Hotel Shanghai and Sühring Bangkok, as well as the Norwegian royal family, to name but a few.

Reviews have also been enthusiastic: In 2013, the Domaine Eva Fricke was voted “Newcomer of the Year” by gourmet magazine Falstaff. The international wine magazine “Fine” named it “Best StartUp” in its edition “New Generation — The 111 Best Young German Winemakers”. The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung awarded Eva Fricke the 2015 title of “Winemaker Rising Star of the Year”, while Stuart Pigott chose her as “Riesling Heroine 2016”. In 2017, the Feinschmecker magazine named the Domaine Eva Fricke a “2017/18 Aufsteiger”.
