VDP: What is so special about your wine estate?

Thomas Seeger: Hmm. What is so special about a wine estate... We are a small family winery and have been cultivating vines for thirteen generations.

VDP: What is your winery philosophy?

Thomas Seeger: Wine must taste good!

VDP: To what wine style do you aspire?

Thomas Seeger: An uncompromising style; I strive to achieve the full potential of each grape variety.

VDP: Which of your wines would you recommend to someone who does not yet know your winery – as an introduction, so to speak?

Thomas Seeger: The Cuvee Anna, which is a blend of Schwarzriesling (Pinot Meunier), Lemberger (Blaufränkisch) and Pinot Noir. The wine is dedicated to my grandmother Anna.

VDP: Of which wines are you particularly proud?

Thomas Seeger: Of all those that have evolved exactly as predicted.

VDP: Why did you become a vintner?

Thomas Seeger: I initially wanted to become a doctor, but my high school diploma was too poor to study medicine. That's why I went to Geisenheim and dedicated myself to oenology. Then I experienced a kind of awakening  on a road trip in Alsace with Mimus Heger – it really opened my eyes. For those who don’t know his nickname, Mimus Heger was the father of Joachim Heger.

“MY ROLE MODELS ARE MY GREAT-GRANDFATHER, MY GRANDFATHER AND MY FATHER.”

VDP: Do you have role models?

Thomas Seeger: Yes, my great-grandfather, my grandfather and my father. And the winemaker Scholl in Wiesloch, an old companion of my grandfather; he was a kind of mentor to me.

VDP: What are your next goals?

Thomas Seeger: Full concentration on the essential operational processes. 

VDP: How do you combine tradition and innovation?

Thomas Seeger: Not at all. We don't stick to any traditions, there are just too many things changing.

VDP: If your wine was music, what would it be?

Thomas Seeger: It would be music from Mozart.
