Immich-Batterieberg is one of the oldest wineries in the Mosel; originally founded by a Carolingian monastery, it can be traced back to the year 911. In 1495, the Immich family purchased the property, producing traditional dry and off-dry wines under their name for almost 500 years. The historical estate was then acquired in 2009 by Gernot Kollmann, one of Germany’s finest up and comers. He is no stranger to the Mosel, having worked on many prestigious wineries in the region – Dr. Loosen, Weingut Van Volxem and Knebel. Since taking over, he has chosen to retain the long-standing tradition of the winery. The wines are once again produced in a dry or off-dry style, with sugar levels depending on each site, each vintage.80-percent of the vines are un-grafted and over 60 years old, and everything is worked organically. Intervention during vinification is also forbidden. A crisp, crunchy, keenly balanced, TOTALLY DRY trocken style Riesling.
