From the Winery

The 9 to 5 grind got you on the verge of going postal? Loosen up with Dr. L's aptly named, quintessential German riesling, made on the banks of the meandering Mosel river with chillaxing in mind.

More about Dr. Loosen

The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 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 best-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class wines. To achieve this, Ernst dramatically reduced his crop size and stopped all chemical fertilization, preferring only moderate use of organic fertilizers. And, most importantly, he turned to gentler cellar practices that allow the wine to develop its full potential with a minimum of handling and technological meddling.

Cupcake
At Cupcake Vineyards, our goal is to craft the richest, smoothest and most elegantly textured wines. To ensure this, we select our grapes from vineyards that are truly expressive of the varietals that we grow. Our Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot come from California’s sun-drenched Central Coast, where the distinctive topography and climate moderated by the Pacific Ocean yields some of California’s best world-class wines. Our Sauvignon Blanc comes from the Marlborough valley of New Zealand, where the long days and cool climate allow the grapes to mature slowly over a longer period of time. Once harvested, the grapes are gently crushed before being cool fermented in stainless steel tanks, which helps to preserve the tropical notes of our Chardonnay, deep cherry aromas of our Merlot, fresh berry notes of our Cabernet Sauvignon, and lemon/Key lime flavors of our Sauvignon Blanc. The wine is then aged in premium American-oak barrels, adding richness and complexity to the wine. Go ahead, live deliciously.
