The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. When Ernst Loosen assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that he had vines in some of Germany’s best-rated vineyards. To maximize the potential of those vines, he dramatically crop size, uses only organic fertilization, insists on very strict fruit selection, and employs gentle cellar practices with a minimum of handling./p>

Located in far western Germany, the Mosel valley’s steep, southfacing slopes create the perfect climate for Riesling, giving the vines ideal exposure to the sun. The cool climate allows the grapes to ripen slowly while retaining bright acidity.

A fresh and delightfully fruity Sekt that has excellent balance from the crisp acidity. Located in far western Germany, the Mosel valley’s steep, southfacing slopes create the perfect climate for Riesling, giving the vines ideal exposure to the sun. The cool climate allows the grapes to ripen slowly while retaining bright acidity.

Sparkling wine, called “Sekt” in German, has a long history in Germany. A fact that you can see in the many German family names among famous Champagne houses (think Bollinger, Krug and Mumm, for example). Dr. Loosen celebrates this tradition with an Extra Dry Sekt from 100% Riesling, which makes excellent sparkling wine because of its natural acidity.
