The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the family for over 200 years and possesses some of Germany"„¢s most respected and spectacular vineyards. Top sites from the villages of Bernkastel, Graach, Wehlen, Ãœrzig and Erden present their own different characteristics like red slate, blue slate, red volcanic conglomerate soil, dangerously steep slopes and in some cases ungrafted vines that can be up to 140 years old. Whatever factors come into play it is clear that they contribute to the unique and exhilarating discoveries that can be found upon opening up a bottle of Dr. Loosen.

In the last few years Ernst Loosen has moved a great deal of his attention to producing dry wines in the traditional style of his ancestors. This means a focus only using healthy grapes, spontaneous fermentation, extended maturation of the wines in large wooden casks and an emphasis on letting his dry wines rest the full lees. This inspiration came to him after tasting an older Ãœrziger Würzgarten dry Riesling from the middle of the 1900"„¢s that an old customer of his grandfather brought to him, and after that day he was driven by the question “what did they do in these days to make a dry wine so age-worthy."� This question may never be answered, but if you try his GG or even his GGR wines you will see that he is on his way to unlocking some of this great mystery.
