Dr. Loosen

Situated on Germany's Mosel River among some of the world's most treasured vineyards, the Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for more than 200 years.

When Ernst Loosen (pronounced LOH-zen) assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that, with ungrafted vines averaging 60 years old in some of Germany's top-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class Rieslings.
