The Growers > Schäfer-Fröhlich
From his 21 hectares Tim Fröhlich produces uncompromisingly angular wines that display breathtaking energy, precision and finesse. He took over responsibility for making the wine in 1983 at the tender age of 19, and supported by his father, who looks after the vineyards, has elevated the estate to one of the very best in Germany. He principal holdings are in: Bockenau – the flagship Felseneck and Stromberg, but he also has vines in the geologically diverse communes of Monzingen with the Halenberg and Frühlingsplätchen vineyards, and Schloßböckelheim with Kupfergrube and Felsenberg. These are wines that can be drunk young, but the best need years to showcase the terroir of their vineyards.
