Dr Loosen

For 200 years, the Loosen family has been producing wine from the famously steep slate vineyards overlooking the Mosel. The estate, situated near Bernkastel, is currently managed by Ernst Loosen, who took over from his father in 1988.

Although Ernst had initially trained as an archaeologist, he stepped in when his father retired because none of his siblings was ready to take the reins. He decided to see whether he was up to the task and it appears that he was right to change careers, because he’s developed a stellar reputation as a highly talented winemaker, with consistently impressive quality levels earning regular awards for Loosen wines. Ernst even won Decanter’s Man of the Year in 2005.

The family has 11 hectares of vines, the overwhelming majority of them riesling, and many over 60 years old, with a number of centenarians. The Loosens also own vines in highly reputable vineyards such as Würzgarten in Urzig and Sonnenuhr in Wehlen, but we believe that the best wine in the Loosen cellar is the riesling from the Treppchen vineyard in Erden, with its iron-rich red soil. Treppchen is so steep that it has had steps built into it to help the workers to reach the vines.
