Family-owned for over 200 years, the winery has been managed by Ernst F. Loosen since 1988. Ernst F. Loosen believes that great wines are the perfect expression of soil, climate, and grape variety. With the heritage of his ancestors – old vines, true to their roots, in historic Grand Cru sites of the Middle Mosel – he found exactly the material he needed to produce independent, complex wines of world-class quality. Today, Dr. Loosen is internationally recognized as the figurehead for a rediscovered German Riesling culture.
