Ninety Plus Cellars
90+ Cellars is not like most other wineries. We don’t make a single drop of wine ourselves. Instead, we offer a small portfolio of high-end wines at everyday prices through a business model that transforms wine market inefficiencies into better value for fine wine consumers. 90+ Cellars converts excess capacity and oversupply at award winning wineries into wine bottled under the 90+ Cellars label, which wine lovers can purchase for less. 90+ Cellars was created in 2009 when founder Kevin Mehra and co-founder Brett Vankoski discovered surplus inventories of premium wine due to decreased consumer spending as the global economy headed into recession. They purchased excess inventory, had it bottled with the 90+ Cellars label and sold it for less than the source bottle price. 90+ Cellars converted market inefficiencies into value for both winemakers and consumers by enabling wineries to sell their oversupply without diluting the value of their brand, and offering consumers an upscale wine for less money. Since then, the people at 90+ Cellars have traveled the world on a mission to provide wine lovers with a way to enjoy their favorite wine more often, and to discover their next favorite.

The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. When Ernst Loosen (pronounced loh-zen) assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that with ungrafted vines averaging 60 years old in some of Germany’s best-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class wines. To achieve this, Ernst dramatically reduced his crop size and stopped all chemical fertilization, preferring only moderate use of organic fertilizers. And, most importantly, he turned to gentler cellar practices that allow the wine to develop its full potential with a minimum of handling and technological meddling.
