Loosen Bros. USA is the sole U.S. importer of the wines of celebrated Riesling producer Ernst Loosen, including Dr. Loosen (in Germany’s Mosel valley) and Villa Wolf (in the Pfalz). In addition, our portfolio features a select group of wines from around the world, made by good friends and relatives of Ernst. This site is primarily for those in the wine trade, but all wine lovers are welcome. Prost!
Dr. Loosen Imports Prominent in Wine Enthusiast
Five of our producers are featured in the April 2015 issue of Wine Enthusiast magazine. Philipp Wittmann, our latest addition, is highlighted in “Rheinhessen Renegades” (pg. 48). Wittmann is leading the revitalization of Germany’s Rheinhessen region. His winemaking technique is traditional; however, he has incorporated “controlled ecological viticulture” in a biodynamic process. Erni Loosen’s Villa Wolf Estate in the Pfalz is gaining attention with their 2013 Riesling Dry earning Best Buy for the month.

A (bio)dynamic family estate in Germany’s Rheinhessen region
We are delighted to announce the addition of another great producer, Weingut Wittmann, to our portfolio. They are pioneers in developing the dynamic, full-bodied, well-balanced style of dry wines for which the Rheinhessen region has become known. The Wittmann family has been growing grapes and producing wine since 1663, making their process completely organic in 1990. They have developed a deep bond with the land they cultivate and this radiates in the wine quality. Philipp Wittmann was honored with being named Germany’s Winemaker of the Year 2014, joining the prestigious ranks of four of our other producers.
