VDP:What is so special about your winery?
Tom Drieseberg: We are a 100 % Riesling winery with a unique portfolio of VDP.GROSSE LAGE® vineyards in the two most important Riesling growing regions of the world: Mosel and Rheingau.
VDP:What is your winery philosophy?

VDP:Do you have or did you have role models or mentors?
Tom Drieseberg: My first boss in industry: Carlhanns Damm and my father-in-law Rolf Wegeler.
VDP:What are your next goals?

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