With a graphic design studio on the Deutsche Weinstraße and a self-declared soft spot for their region and its products, it was perhaps inevitable that Frederic and his wife Simone would extend their passion to winemaking. In 2018 they found their own tiny plot, already planted with vines around 30 years old, and with plenty of help from friends and family they created Carrousel de Tête.

Meeting Fred, the creativity and playfulness that runs throughout his work suddenly makes sense. Charismatic and full of smiles, his energy is infectious and, as one of the co-creators of Soupe Salon in ’23 (a new wine salon in Pfalz), it’s clear that ideas are still very much flowing.

The wines are produced using little but grapes and time, and farmed organically since the beginning. In 2020, two vineyards in Deidesheim and Meckenheim were added. The total still lies just under half a hectare, planted with Silvaner, Riesling and Portugieser which are used to make their Blanc and Rouge. 

Carrousel de Tête also make négoce wines as well as small, collaborative projects with fellow winemakers: 2023 saw the release of collaborative wines made with the Seckinger brothers and Lukas Hammelmann in the Pfalz region. Needless to say, the labels are all designed with the creative flair of Fred’s studio, KGP.

It is a small project, due partly to the naturally low yield but intentionally kept that way to encourage creativity, fun and the chance to blow off some steam outside the studio. Asked about their future the answer is simple: nicht größer werden, nur besser. Not bigger, only better.
