Visiting Weingut Dr. Loosen – Episode #442

Browse By

In this special edition of 1337 Wine TV, Mark starts his trip to ProWein in Germany with a quick visit to the Mosel and the Dr. Loosen winery. He sits down with Ernst Loosen and his nephew Daniel Emmes for what is essentially a master class on German riesling. Earlier in the day Daniel took Mark to a few of the iconic vineyards in the area. Later they discuss 7 different rieslings and many other topics.

Weingut Dr. Loosen

VDP – The Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter (the Association of German Prädikat Wine Estates, abbreviated VDP), is an elite group of some 200 quality-oriented German vintners who are committed to terroir-driven viticulture at the highest level.

German Ripeness Levels – This is a page on the Dr. Loosen site that explains the 1971 German quality wine system based on ripeness levels. The VDP link on the page doesn’t work. The next link below is what you should click on for the VDP quality classification system.

VDP Quality Classification – This is a page from the VDP website that explains their classification system of quality that is similar to the Burgundian system. It is not part of German law, but is a system that the members of the VDP use to distinguish quality.
