LOOSEN BROS. USA
Wine Estates with History and Vision
Loosen Bros. USA is a dynamic fine wine importer headquartered near Portland, Oregon. We are committed to representing winemakers and estates from around the world who are at the pinnacle of their respective regions, with a primary focus on Riesling and Pinot Noir.
The company was founded in 2003 for the purpose of developing a more stable and effective import platform for the wines of Ernst Loosen's two German wine estates, Dr. Loosen and Villa Wolf. With the rapidly growing success of the Dr. L Riesling brand, it had become essential to better manage distribution and pricing across the U.S. Starting modestly, with just 2 employees, LB USA at first covered only a dozen states. In 2006, a 3rd employee was hired and the company took on the remaining states, focusing first on major markets and gradually opening the secondary markets. The company now has 8 employees and has distribution partners in all 50 states.
