Loosen Bros. USA is delighted to announce the addition of yet another great producer to the Dr. Loosen Imports portfolio.
Weingut Wittmann is a biodynamic family estate in Germany’s Rheinhessen region. They are pioneers in developing the dynamic, full-bodied, and well-balanced style of dry wines for which the Rheinhessen region has become known.
Winemaker Philipp Wittmann is Germany’s 2014 Winemaker of the Year. (For that honor he joined Ernst Loosen, Wilhelm Haag, Carl von Schubert, and Wilhelm Weil, all part of our portfolio.)
The Wittmann family has developed a deep bond with the land they cultivate. They have been growing grapes and producing wine since 1663. In 1990 they became completely organic, and in 2004, biodynamic.
The estate is known for balanced wines that have tension, depth and intensity, but at the same time are fresh and elegant. Philipp Wittmann looks for natural balance in the vineyards, in order to slow the ripening process and harvest grapes that have fully developed flavors, but are not overripe.
