USQ | Wine Maker Dinner with Eva FrickeJanuary 20 2019 | 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
13 E. 13th Street, New York, NY 10003
Riesling and the Rheingau region belong together. Eva Fricke focuses mainly on Riesling, which she considers predisposed to best express the wonderful diversity of the Rheingau's terroir. Join us for a five course dinner featuring Eva's favorite expressions of Rheingau.
Her philosophy is simple and pure: clear and concentrated wines that reveal the nuances of nature, soil and vintage.
The estate wines express a blend of all the soils that the Rheingau has to offer. The village wines show the amazing differences that the very different soils and microclimates found in the upper and lower Rheingau can produce. Single vineyard wines make up the top of her portfolio with the highest fruit concentrations, fruit expressions and densities. We will be exploring the full range of Eva's styles from sparkling to single vineyard wines along side a menu curated specially to highlight the nuances of her wines.
