A Project Purely Dedicated to German-Riesling
Producing top-class Riesling wines, W. E. Frank Wines is a fresh face in the German wine industry located on the Rote Hang in the Nierstein wine region of Rheinhessen. The winery only makes Premier and Grand Crus, exceptfor a tiny amount of Pinot Noir; the estate is “”Only Riesling – Only Cru.””
Founded by Three Professionals in the Wine Sector
W.E. Frank Wines was established on August 25, 2015, when three wine experts, Dr. Wolfgang E. Frank, Heide Hennecken, and Thomas Leeb. The trio has a company named Grapevault GmbH that sells wines from top-notch wineries and beers from selected breweries in Germany. Alf E. Ewald, the head of oenology, handles all the winery and cellar operations. He gives a full-fledged tour of the winery when tourists visit Nierstein. Using the queen of white wines, Riesling, Dr. Wolfgang and the team deliver high-quality red, white, and sparkling wines.
Expansion of W.E. Frank Wines Vineyards
The owners bought their first vineyard in Orbel and leased them Pettenthal. In 2016, new plots were added in Hipping, Ölberg, and LudwigshöherTeufelskopf. The vintage produced in 2015 was one of the best so far, but 2016’s vintage, which is in the market nowadays, is nothing less than the first one. The following years’ Riesling vintages are also gaining attention on both national and international fronts.
