FROM THE PRODUCER

From the Winery

This dry (no seriously, it’s completely dry and not sweet at all) Riesling, named after the famous red slate hills above Germany's Mosel river, will make even the saltiest fisherman a white wine convert at your next beachside BBQ.

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.
