Cherry Wine from Frederiksdal

Frederiksdal Estate was not pre-destined to be famous for their cherry wine. For many years the output from the estate’s cherry plantation varied to a degree so Hans Krabbe, the proprietor, had decided to cut down the cherry trees and grow corn instead. Furtunately it never came to that. A talk over lunch with journalist and wine enthusiast Morten Brink Iwersen resulted in the successful cheery wine production at Frederiksdal Estate.
