Jochen Dreissigacker has caused a considerable stir both in his native Germany and abroad, winning high praise and points,wherever his wines are sold.
His 21 hectares of vineyards are based in the Rheinhessen and his wines all have Organic certification and he also uses Biodynamic methods for much of his estate (although has chosen not to be certified).
He reduced the yields in the vineyard and identified the best parcels of vines in order to vinify each separately.
As expected of an Organic estate, his approach in the cellar is as natural as possible, using only wild yeasts to ferment the must and harvesting only fully ripe grapes. http://www.dreissigacker-wein.de/
Rheinhessen is responsible for the largest production by volume of Qualitätswein in Germany. It is located on the west bank of the Rhine, in an area formerly within the state of Hesse (whence the name Rheinhessen) but is in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
It is also known as 'the land of a thousand hills' and has been producing wine since ancient Roman times.
This region is located to the south of the Rheingau, north of Pfalz and east of Nahe.
The Rhine river runs along its north-eastern border, with the Haardt mountains to the south and the Nahe river to the west forming a natural border.
The stony soils of loess and loam work in conjunction with the Rhine to provide the vines with warmth in the evenings. With just 500mm of precipitation per year, this is one of the driest wine regions in Germany.
