Products by Weingut Dr. Loosen:

Company email (January 2020)

"We don’t use any animal products in our wines. When we need to do a fining to clarify a wine, we use bentonite, which is a type of fine clay.

Our wines are only produced and bottled by us in Germany. We don’t use any sub-licensee bottling facilities around the world. But we are thinking about it because it would lower our carbon footprint to ship in bulk and bottle in the country where the wine will be sold. If we ever did that, however, we’d still stick with our vegan-friendly practices."

Company email (November 2016: re: Dr. L Riesling
"I am happy to confirm that the Dr. L Riesling is suitable for vegans. No animal products are used in its production. The only filtration we do is with diatomaceous earth. And the wine is all bottled by us at our winery in the Mosel."

Company email (August 2016) re: Villa Wolf 2014 Reisling:
"Villa Wolf 2014 Riesling is vegan."

Company email (August 2015):
"We do not use any animal products in the production of Dr. Loosen Riesling. There is only a light filtration with diatomaceous earth before the bottling."

Company email (October 2011):
"None of our Rieslings are produced with any kind of animal product. We do a light fining, but with diatomaceous earth. So I believe the wines should be completely suitable for vegans."

Company email:
"At Dr. Loosen, we only use diatomaceous earth as a fining agent to help clarify the wines. No animal products are used, so the wines should be suitable for vegans."
