Domaine Pierre Frick has been handed down throughout the family for twelve generations and now covers 12 ha of vineyards. It is managed by Jean-Pierre and Chantal Frick, and their son Thomas Frick.
At the forefront of the biodynamic movement Jean-Pierre Frick makes wines that are scrupulously natural.

Yellow colour with gold highlights. Complex and dense aromas of limestone pebbles, grilled hazelnuts, rum and tobacco with hints of nutmeg. The palate is dry, dense and tense with flavours of citrus zest and limestone and a very long finish with good freshness and salinity.

Winemaking Harvesting is by hand, which is expensive, but is important for ‘the social side experienced during harvest and the search of quality through grape selection’. In the winery whole-bunch pressing is used, the juice is left to settle overnight.  Ferment is ambient with indigenous yeasts. Since 1998 there has been no chaptalization here. Old oak casks, averaging 3000 litres capacity, are used for maturation. No filtration, no fining agents, no SO2 added at any point.
