Gebrüder Loosen (“Loosen Brothers” in German), is the winemaking company that produces the range of Dr. L wines. It is owned by Ernst Loosen, who also owns the Dr. Loosen estate, and is managed by his younger brother, Thomas. Together, the brothers work with small growers throughout the Mosel region to source fruit for the wines, which are vinified by the same highly skilled cellar team that produces the Dr. Loosen estate wines. Very strict quality standards require that the growers improve their viticulture in order to sustainably grow the healthy, perfectly ripe fruit that Ernst and Thomas want for these wines.
Located in far western Germany, the Mosel valley’s steep, southfacing slopes and slate soil
create the perfect conditions for Riesling, giving the vines ideal exposure to the sun and a
racy minerality. The cool, northern climate allows the grapes to ripen slowly, for full flavor
development, while retaining bright, refreshing acidity

“Really juicy with a ton of apple and pear character. A very crisp finish. Yes, there is also has some
sweeetness in there, but the balance is spot-on. An ideal wine for spicy seafood dishes.” June 2018

“Whitegrapefruit, lemon and green-apple flavors are delightfully juicy on the palate, tinged by
hints of caramelized sugar and piercing lime acidity.” April 2019
