Ernst Loosen, universally known as Erni, is one of the key figures in the modern renaissance of German wine. He’s a genuine global wine rockstar. Listen to us chat about his love of vintage cars, why he thinks Riesling is like a good actor – adept at playing many roles, what he’s learnt from making wine with Chateau Sainte Michelle in Washington State, and how great wines begin in your head.
To read more about Erni have a look at the Dr Loosen website. You can also follow him on Instagram @dr.loosen.
Don’t forget, Cork Talk is now available on Spotify. You can listen to this week’s episode, plus my back catalogue of interviews with some of the world’s most extraordinary wine figures.
