Dr. Paul Loosen (1924-2001) held a number of important winegrowing offices. In 1967 he was a founding member of the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Wine Brotherhood and had served as Brotherhood Chancellor for 25 years. He received the Federal Cross of Merit for his achievements in German viticulture. After many visits to important wineries around the world, the business was taken over by Ernst F. Loosen in 1988. As one of the first measures, a strict yield limitation was introduced.

The vineyards cover 22 hectares of vineyards in individual locations Heaven (Graach) Lay (Bernkastel) prelate and podium (Earth), sundial (Wehlen), as well Würzgarten (Ürzig). 98% of them are planted with Riesling, 98% of them ungrafted are cultivated and on average 60 years, some of which are even over 100 years old. The small rest are Pinot Blanc. Management is based on the principles of one sustainable. noninvasive (Minimalist) viticulture with exclusively organic fertilization or no chemical fertilizer.

The botrytis Grapes are selected meticulously and the three quality classes selection gold capsule (highly ripe grapes), Beerenauslese (grapes shrunk by half) and only Trockenbeerenauslese (from raisin grapes).

Two wines are regularly contributed to the annual VDP auction, these are the Rieslings "Ürziger Würzgarten Spätlese Goldkapsel" (from the oldest vines) and "Erdener Prälat Auslese Lange Goldkapsel".
