Dr Loosen wines are hailed as some of the finest examples of Riesling not just in Germany
but globally, with these wines picking up practically every international award wine can
collect. The Estate is one of the most historic wine Estates in Germany and has a fascinating
history that you will find out about during this tasting.

I am delighted to invite the legend himself Ernst (or Ernie) Loosen the owner of Dr Loosen
Wines to Birmingham for a rare appearance in the UK (and an even rarer appearance
outside London). Ernie is one of wines true legends, and is amongst a handful of people who
have been named as “Man of the Year” by Decanter magazine. As well as being a legendary
winemaker, he is also one of the most interesting and most entertaining people I have ever
heard talking about wines. It is a true privilege to have someone of this standing come and
showcase his iconic wines, and I can say personally I am really excited to attend this tasting.

We will be showcasing a whole range of Loosen wines, and during the tasting you will
explore the breadth and depth that Riesling can offer, showing a range from Dry to Sweet
and showing some of his much vaunted “GG” (Grand Cru) wines, as well as showcase some
of the other varietals that Ernie makes.

We are hosting the tasting at Opus Restaurant, where we will start with a drinks reception
in the bar, followed by a four-course dinner, paired with some fantastic Dr Loosen wines.
We have a very limited number of tickets for this event, and as this is potentially the only
time we will get Ernie to Birmingham tickets will sell out quickly.

When: Thursday 1 st March (Drinks Reception 7pm, Dinner at 7:30pm)

Where: Opus Restaurant, Cornwall Street

Price: £90 for drinks reception, four-courses with wine to match. (service included)
