Wine estate Markus Fries

The winery Fries is located on the outskirts of Maring-Noviand, a small side valley of the Moselle near Bernkastel. The owner is Markus Fries. After studying in Geisenheim/Rheingau and Bordeaux/France (Faculté d’Oenologie), he continues the winery in the 8th generation.

„We make Riesling different, especially, also for reflection. For our customers we want to offer high quality wines, wines that show their origin and are authentic, far from the crowd. No frills, no tricks, pure wine!“

A large part of the area is planted with root-like and very old vines. Each vineyard has its own peculiarity. Each type of soil, combined with the location and its associated microclimate, produces a unique wine with a specific character.

The winery is certified as an organic farm.
