The Dr. Loosen Estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. With ungrafted vines averaging 50 years old, some of the best vineyard sites in Germany, Ernst Loosen has the raw materials for stunningly intense, world-class wines. With crop yields almost half of what is permitted by law, only moderate use of organic fertilizers, and old-fashioned cellar practices, Loosen strives to create wines that unmistakably say, “Riesling, Mosel, and Dr. Loosen.” In his own words, “The great winemakers I have met invariably possess a clear concept in their mind of what their wine should be. It’s a vision that places terroir over technology, and grape quality over quantity. This is the level of winemaking we pursue at Dr. Loosen. Our goal is to produce wines that are luscious, complex, and true to their roots.”
Red volcanic rock in the Ürziger Würzgarten vineyard makes this a unique location in the Middle Moselle. Bright red and frighteningly steep, the Ürziger Würzgarten forms an amphitheater of Rotliegend unique to the Mosel. Here the grapes are perfectly ripened for great Rieslings that are full-bodied with spicy aromas, great depth and long ageing potential. In some years, you can taste anise and even a hint of Gewürztraminer. The oldest vines of the winery grow in the Ürziger Würzgarten.
