About This Vineyard
Jean-Pierre Frick is not only into biodynamics as a grower and winemaker, the entire atmosphere at the domaine is full of life, harmony and peacefulness. Jean-Pierre turned into organic viticulture in the 1970s, went fully biodynamic in 1981 and has not chaptalized since 1988. Frick ploughs the soil carefully, uses cow dung every fourth year as the only fertilizer and lets wild herbs flourish in the vineyard during the growing season. In short, the idea is to give the vine a chance to utilize the soil and the sunshine as much and as naturally as possible.
Frick also produces a selection of wines without any use of sulphur, a practice that he’s really mastered over the years. Tasting through his range of wines, the one’s without added sulfites had the most delicious expressive nose. Beautifully made wines. Even if you come to the domaine without an appointment, the tasting is very serious. Frick uses good glasses, and you are first served some water to clear the palate. The tasting is blind, and you will be presented a small booklet with descriptions and the technical data of all wines.
