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. In 1989, the estate was sold to a new owner, and the style of winemaking quickly shifted: long, spontaneous barrel fermentations were replaced with stainless steel, cultured yeasts and micro-filtration. The resulting wines became sleeker, fruitier and more modern.
