Wow! We had a blast with Ernie Loosen last night, who joined us for our latest LockdownLive! stream via Facebook and YouTube. Take a look here>
Since the lockdown commenced, our external events have been cancelled and so we took to the social media channels to reach out to friends, customers and anyone interested in learning a little more about wine in a fun and entertaining way.
We’re now pleased to be bringing in guests into the fold in the form of world renowned winemakers and none more so than the great Ernst Loosen, a legend across the wine industry.
Ernst was born into a winemaking family, although his early fascination was more along archaeology than oenology. But when Dad came calling and was ready to turn the business over to his children, Ernst stepped up to the plate and happily found his true calling.
He applied a simply philosophy – a strive to produce intense, concentrated wines that show individuality and great character. When he purchased the Villa Wolf winery in 1996, he applied this same philosphy and the winery has never looked back.
Ernst was named Germany’s Winemaker of the Year in 2001, Decanter’s Man of the Year in 2005 and International Wine Challenge’s White Winemaker of the Year in the same year. His achievements are considerable and we are delighted that he joined us for our vinous chit-chat on Thursday 23rd July 2020.
