Jochen Dreissigacker is a young vigneron, fiercely dedicated to giving voice to some of the most exciting vineyard sites of Rheinhessen. After spending a few years working with the iconic Klaus-Peter Keller, Jochen took the reins at his family estate and began the work of converting to Organic viticulture. By focusing on enhancing the vitality of his soils using natural methods, limiting yields, harvesting by hand and vinifying with native yeasts, he captures the individual mineral character of each of his parcels, revealing wines with power and depth without the weight of high alcohol that many of the region’s more famous wines possess.

Dreissigacker is at the forefront of the current ‘Rheinhessen revival’. They are currently producing some of Germany’s most exciting wines, with incredible purity and aromatics. With plans to join the ‘VDP’ group of growers in mind, Dreissigacker has adopted the same pyramid of quality – Estate, Village and Single Vineyard – for the wines. Jochen Dreissigacker is one of the rising stars of the German wine scene and has achieved much critical acclaim both at home and abroad since taking over the running of the family estate in 2005.

His approach in the winery is as non-interventionist as possible, using only wild yeasts, stainless steel vats and obtaining sweetness in the wines by harvesting only fully ripe grapes, rather than by adding ‘süss-reserve‘ after vinification. With a stringent focus on quality, Jochen has converted his 21 hectares of vineyard to biodynamic viticulture (certified since 2010), while yields have been reduced and the best parcels identified in order to vinify each separately. The best vineyard plots include Hasensprung, Geyersberg, Rosengarten, all of which are located within Bechtheim village, where the soils are a mix of loess and marl.

"I wanted to take something good and make it truly excellent, to transform good flavor into an exciting experience, and elevate pleasant wines to an inspiring experience. In all that I did, I worked with the unique mineral composition of our vineyards, the local climate and microclimate and harnessed my deep passion for winemaking. Ecology, sustainability and the respectful use of the existing resources has gradually changed theface of our vineyards. Imagination and pragmatism were my daily helpers in my search for the perfect wine." — Jochen Dreissigacker

Rheinhessen is a supremely unique expression of German viticulture. Normally when one thinks of the greatest vineyard sites for riesling, we envision the breathtaking slopes of the Mosel or the hand-worked terraces of the Rheingau; in the best villages of Rheinhessen, the vines grow on gentle slopes with shallow deposits of loess and loam, overlying a bedrock of active limestone—reminiscent of the great terroirs of Burgundy. These sites produce wines of great depth and concentration with scintillating tension amongst fruit, ripe acidity and mineral structure.
