Reinhard Löwenstein created his estate in 1980, spending the early years identifying top sites, before settling on five hectares of prime, precipitous Winningen (Lower Mosel) slate slopes. Since then, the estate has grown to 15 hectares, incorporating sites in the Von Blauem, Kirchberg, Stolzenberg, Röttgen and Uhlen vineyards. This landscape is both wild and beautiful and is made up of a patchwork of soil types, many of which influence the characters of the wines. The fruit undergoes meticulous sorting in the vineyards; then the juice is given 24 to 48 hours skin contact, before fermenting to as close to full dryness as possible Crucially, Reinhard aims to incorporate between 10 and 20 percent botrytised fruit to his dry wines, imparting complexity and richness. The wines usually achieve around 12 percent alcohol, as they aren’t bottled until well into the summer, unlike more classical Mosel styles, which are bottled in March or April. The result is wine with great personality and energy, just like its grower.
Our passion is reflected in everything we do. We source the very best wines possible from the far corners of the earth and provide what we believe is an unparalleled consumer experience.
A pioneer of the industry with decades of experience behind us, we aim to clear the fog surrounding the wine industry and continually set the bar higher for all of our practices and products.
Labor of Love
Our passion for wine shapes our company culture and makes each job, a labour of love. Ultimately, our goal is to inspire people to share this love, and in doing so reap the enjoyment good wines provide.
