Jochen Dreissigacker farms 45 hectares of vineyards in the Rheinhessen, 55% of which are planted with Riesling. All his wines are certified organic, an approach that Jochen describes as “the artisan path to purity” and he has since also implemented biodynamic principles to create optimal conditions for grapes to thrive. Focusing on improving vineyard practices is, as Jochen explains, “a long-term investment in nature and wines”. This extends further to reducing yields in the vineyard by creating a much healthier soil, which in turn lowers vine vigour. “The path to any truly great wine is to limit the amount of grapes that are allowed to ripen,” says Jochen.

As expected from an organic estate, Jochen’s approach in the cellar is as natural as possible, using only indigenous yeast fermentations and minimal intervention. All his wines, except for the Auslese, are fermented fully dry. The optimal position of his vineyards, low yields and Jochen’s determination to pick at optimum ripeness ensures full flavour and eliminates any need for residual sugar to balance unripe flavours.

The ‘Organic’ Riesling is ripe, clean, scented and zesty, offering outstanding value.
