The top three names among that group of young winemakers in this progressive wine region are probably Stefan Winter, Kai Schatzel and Jochen Dreissigacker, feted by top German producers and by insiders as important as British wine critic Jancis Robinson.Dreissigacker and some of his contemporaries founded a group called "Message in a Bottle" and many of its founder members are among the best producers in Germany today, Dreissigacker said.Dreissigacker believes that a good wine should have a certain fingerprint of the producer, in addition to reflecting its origin and grape variety.What is apparent when tasting the Geyserberg is that it is in the same family as the estate wine, but it seems to deliver more of everything, compared with the estate wine. Historically, dry wines have been the focus on the domestic market with sweeter styles strong on the export market.Dreissigacker believes that Germany's wine community should increasingly go in the dry direction, though global lovers of the country's sweet wines might be disappointed to hear that.
