BREATH-TAKING
The Moselle Valley is not only stunningly beautiful, but also one of the oldest wine-producing regions in Europe - and without doubt the German wine-growing region that is best known internationally. Anyone who has seen the incredibly steep slopes and stony soils can understand this. The natural physical characteristics of the Moselle are unique. The best Mosel Rieslings can be found on the wine list of every top restaurant in the world: for their finesse, their silky balance and their almost infinite aftertaste. Their length of flavour makes them some of the best dinner accompaniments imaginable, but - and every wine lover should bear this in mind - wines from the Moselle need time to reach perfection. If they are given time in the bottle, the best examples become legendary.

HISTORICAL
When a wine-growing estate has been in operation for more than a thousand years, it is fair to say that it is a tradition! The oldest part of the Immich-Batterieberg building is mentioned in a document dating back to 908....... The vaults of the wine cellar are supported by an original Roman basalt column. Not much more evidence is needed to establish the historical significance of this renowned wine company in Enkirch, which was later owned by the Immich family for five hundred years. Knowledge about Riesling and the best expositions on the Moselle were passed on from generation to generation. In the 1840s Carl-August Immich developed the vineyard that gave the estate its name. The Batterieberg became a vineyard by blowing up rocks with explosives. In the official Prussian vineyard classification of 1868 the extremely steep vineyards of the estate were registered in the highest category. After a moderate period in the 20th century, the wine lovers Volker Auerbach, Roland Probst and the winemaker Gernot Kollmann bought the estate. They have continually pursued the goal of restoring the extraordinary intrinsic value of Moselle wines - despite all prejudices and prevailing trends. Under the leadership of the passionate winemaker Gernot Kollman, Immich-Batterieberg now produces uncompromisingly refined wines, which are among the absolute best of their kind in the world.

DIZZYING
It can hardly get any steeper (yes - the nearby Calmont seems even steeper). The Immich-Batterieberg vineyards are so steep that the sunlight hits the vines almost at right angles. The roots must therefore dig deep into the stony slate soil in order to firmly anchor the vine. The yields are extremely low and therefore the aromas particularly concentrated. For this reason, wines from the steepest sites are always unmistakably shaped by their origin (terroir). The vineyards must be cultivated by hand, machines are not useful. Immich-Batterieberg currently owns five vineyards on extremely steep slopes: Batterieberg, Steffensberg, Zeppwingert, Ellergrub and Zollturm. Gernot Kollmann has set himself the goal of restoring and rehabilitating particularly steep, old and labour-intensive vineyards. The number of steep-sided parcels will increase over the years, thus preserving the cultural value of the Moselle as a wine region.

STRONG CHARACTERS
All the estate's wines come from the steepest vineyards, which have been ranked in the highest quality category since 1868. Grapes for the vineyard wines Batterieberg, Ellergrub, Zeppwingert, Steffensberg and Zollturm are harvested and vinified per plot. The vines are more than sixty-five years old and all grow on their own rootstock, the yields are on average only 25 hectolitres per hectare! For the wines Escheburg and C.A.I. grapes are harvested from younger vines.
