New 2015 Vintage GGs Are Released!
Coming soon to you…our new 2015 vintage of GG (Grosses Gewächs = “grand cru”) dry Rieslings!
Starting with the 2008 vintage, Ernst Loosen has embarked on a quest to revive the dry Riesling style of his grandfather. All of these single-vineyard GG wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts in 1,000 or 3,000-liter oak casks and left on the lees for 12 months with no batonnage.
Three Takeaways from Riesling Rendezvous
What a busy year we’re having! With a successful harvest in the rearview mirror, we’d like to pause for a moment and think back to Riesling Rendezvous, an event we co-hosted with Chateau Ste. Michelle in July.
