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.

Dr L Riesling Dr Loosen Mosel A great introduction to the delightful 2006 Rieslings of the Mosel. 2006 has proved to be an exceptional vintage in German white wines. The Dr, "L" 2006 is bursting with peach and apple flavors. Lively, refreshing, and utterly delicious.
