Gernot Kollman, owner/winemaker at Immich-Batterieberg, will be joining us for a masterclass on the mezzanine on Thursday, April 11 at 6pm. Few are more knowledgeable about natural winemaking on the Mosel, and Gernot himself has saved countless pre-phylloxera vines in psychotically steep Mosel vineyards like the Batterieberg, Ellergrub, and Steffensberg. 

Gernot hails from Wetter (in Westphalia). In the early 1990s, at Weingut Dr. Loosen in Bernkastel, he began to transform into a career what had previously been an intensively cultivated hobby. After completing his studies in Wine Business Administration in Heilbronn, and after a brief tenure at the Fürstlich Castell’schen Domänenamt, Gernot worked first at the Bischöflicher Weingüter in Trier and then at Van Volxem on the Saar. Since 2004 he has consulted at several estates, both in Germany and abroad, and has enjoyed high praise for his wines in the national and international press. 

In 2009 Gernot assumed responsibility for the direction and the winemaking at Weingut Immich-Batterieberg. His effort to rehabilitate the estate, its cellars, and its treasure trove of ancient, ungrafted vines on some of the Mosel’s steepest slopes has been nothing short of heroic. Gernot strives to make a powerful, sometimes somewhat wild, "unstyled" style of Riesling. We will taste through his wines including his grand cru bottlings at this not-to-be-missed masterclass.

Seating is very limited. The cost of this seminar is $40 and a $20 credit at the store will be extended to each guest for a future purchase. We hope you can join us on Thursday, April 11 at 6pm for this very special event.

German Wines

Is there a better grape than Riesling? Is there a better value? Its fruit purity, its perfume, and its mineral nuance are all unparalleled. And for centuries, the top German Rieslings were priced accordingly: at least as expensive as the top red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy. But nowadays you could spend a lifetime exploring Germany’s great Riesling-producing regions while staying well within your budget. You might take an occasional break to try Germany’s other white grapes or perhaps a glass of Spätburgunder (the local name for Pinot Noir). It’s time to get started!
