The classic story - a 2-century old family vineyard finally finds the right hands in the 9th generation. Tim Fröhlich made his first vintage in 1995 and has since been held as one of the greatest winemaking talents in Germany, regularly creating wines of both density and energy.

Schafer-Frohlich

The Nahe is home to some famous German estates but Schafer-Fröhlich is tops among them, counting among their 21 hectares of vines the famous Felseneck, Kupfergrube and Felsenberg. As with so many classic German estates, the slopes of these vineyards are so intense that everything must be harvested by hand, resulting in a rigorous selection process of tiny grapes that intensify the flavors and quality of his six GG wines.

Since he ascended to the winemaking seat in 1995, Tim made some smart trades and acquisitions of land, increasing his family's holdings to include a fine palate of vineyard and soil types; Felseneck's quartzite soils provide an elegant, defined wine. Felsenberg and Kupfergrube have volcanic influences, providing richness and more spiced mineral tones; Halenberg's blue slate and Frühlingsplätzchen's red slate offer unique, more crystalline qualities, in their own right top Grand Crus of the Nahe.

Tim's strengths are clear in poor or hot vintages, as he is quite adept in managing his vineyard to weather the varied storms; his wines are consistently stunning in quality, be they of rainy vintages like 2014 or hot as in 2018. Without a doubt, some of Germany's best wines come from this estate every single year.
