Dr. Loosen is a German wine estate located in the Mosel wine region, which is known for producing some of the world's finest Rieslings. The estate has a history dating back over 200 years and is currently owned by Ernst Loosen, who took over from his father in the 1980s. Dr. Loosen produces a range of Rieslings, from dry to sweet, as well as some other varietals such as Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc.
The estate has vineyards on some of the steepest and most terraced slopes of the Mosel river, with soils rich in slate and mineral content that contribute to the unique character of the wines. The focus at Dr. Loosen is on producing wines that are true to their terroir and express the vintage in which they were grown, rather than attempting to manipulate the wine through heavy-handed winemaking techniques.
Dr. Loosen has received numerous accolades and awards for their wines over the years, including being named one of Wine & Spirits Magazine's "Top 100 Wineries of the Year" multiple times. The estate's flagship wine is the Dr. L Riesling, a crisp and refreshing wine that is widely available in the United States and has helped to introduce many wine drinkers to the joys of German Riesling. Overall, Dr. Loosen is considered one of the top producers of Riesling in Germany, and their wines are highly sought after by wine collectors and enthusiasts around the world.
