Jochen Dreissigacker has 21 hectares of vineyards in the Rheinhessen, 55% of which are Riesling. All of his wines are certified organic and he describes his transformation to organic viticulture as “the artisan path to purity”. He reduced the yields in the vineyard by creating a much healthier soil, which in turn was lower in vigour. “The path to any truly great wine is to limit the amount of grapes that are allowed to ripen,” says Jochen. The approach to Dreissigacker wines is simple – as little intervention as possible with low yields and careful fruit selection. All vineyards are certified organic and biodynamic methods are often used, resulting in excellent fruit quality, hence beautiful balance. Outstanding value!
