The Frey winery is located in the heart of the village of Ober-Flörsheim, the highest settlement in the south-west of Rheinhessen, where the family’s roots as winegrowers go back into the 18th century. Philipp and Christopher Frey and their father Stefan are now in charge, tending 23 hectares of organic vines.
To provide a solution for the poor image of the semi-dry wines the denomination “Feinherb” was created, and now it is more and more used as an alternative for the term ‘halbtrocken’.
Feinherb is a vaguely defined term for wines with roughly 10-20 grams of residual sugar per litre, where the maximum permitted residual sugar for halbtrocken is 18 grams per litre. Hence feinherb wines are generally slightly sweeter than halbtrocken wines, without being sweet as honey.
