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.
