Family-owned for over 200 years, the winery has been managed by Ernst F. Loosen since 1988. Great wines, he believes, are the perfect expression of soil, climate and grape variety. With the heritage of his ancestors - old vines, true to their roots, in historic Grand Cru sites of the Middle Mosel – he found exactly the material he needed to produce independent, complex wines of world class. Today applies Dr. Loosen internationally as the figurehead for a rediscovered German Riesling culture. Since 1993, the winery has been a member of the VDP (Association of German Quality Wineries).

Wehlener Sonnenuhr

In this very steep vineyard grows one of the most elegant and perfumed white wines in the world. The stony, shallow blue slate soil gives the wine a delicate and fresh acidity and a unique elegance. In their youth, the wines of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr are the most charming of our estate, with the fragrance of white peach and green apple. With many years of bottle maturity, they can grow into legends.


"Brimming with stone fruits with delicate floral honey and caramelized pear aromas. Ripe and generous, but with a lively acidity that keeps this moving briskly over the palate. Long finish in which creamy and crisp elements are beautifully balanced." - James Suckling
