The essence of Frederiksdal is a great respect for history, nature and tradition combined with the courage to uncompromisingly explore new ways of doing things. Being rebels and yet valuing our heritage is our trademark.
Frederiksdal Estate in Southern Denmark is where all our wines are produced. A rare entrepreneurial spirit, courage and passion drive the innovation and development of the wide range of products emanating from this special corner of Denmark.
The history of Frederiksdal Estate dates back to 1756. The cherry adventure started in 2006 almost by accident. From here on, the story developed fast and so did an ambition to produce the best cherry wine in the world, never compromising on the quality of the raw materials.
The Stevns cherry has grown in Denmark for generations and it has become the focus of a wine-revolution in Lolland.
It takes a minimum of nine years from the time a cherry tree has been planted until a bottle of Frederiksdal Cherrywine is on the table.
Frederiksdal is a slow farm with deep roots.
The trees are six years old before any cherries are harvested. This is the natural development of the trees – it takes time to grow roots.
Once the cherries are harvested, it takes another minimum of three years before the wine is ready to drink – but it is worth the wait.
On Frederiksdal we are the first and so far the only producer of wine made by cherries following the centuries old principles for making traditional wine from grapes.
The Stevns cherry is the base of the wine and the berries are produced solely in the plantations of Frederiksdal. The wine will ferment freely and is kept both outside in glass vats/balloons in all kinds of weather and also inside in old, French oak vats.
The result is a highly acclaimed and prize-winning Danish world class quality wine.
