Weingut Schäfer-Fröhlich

Information

The winery is located in the Schäfer-Fröhlich Bockenau community of Germany.

The operation since the early 1970s is controlled by Hans and Karin Fröhlich, fifth-generation of their family.

The tradition is continuing with son Tim, who is since 1996 responsible for the cellar.

The vineyards cover 12.5 hectares of vineyards in the layers Felseneck and Stromberg (Bockenau) Frühlingsplätzchen and Halenberg (Monzingen), and Felsenberg and Copper Mine (Castle Böckelheim).

They are planted to 80% with Riesling, as well as the varieties of Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir.

The Riesling is harvested very late and selectively. The fermentation occurs with selected yeasts and spontaneous yeasts in stainless steel tanks.
