IMMEL - The Rheinhessen Wine Family
The Immels from the Rhine make up a network of families with roots in the region stretching back across more than seven centuries. Their history reads like a family epic: patricians in Worms, mayors of Oppenheim, affluent landowners in Westhofen. Here, in the rolling, chalky hills where the most precious vineyards in the region open imposingly towards the river, is where the Immel family in 1754 settled and bought land.
The family was active in winegrowing from its earliest days in Westhofen, and nothing today has changed in that regard. With a feel for the soil, climate and nature, the young team of Immel continues a careful preservation and expansion of regional winegrowing tradition. They uphold a tireless commitment to controlled organic viticulture, certified by the EU Bio seal, thus preserving the green Hills of the Rheinhessen for many generations to come.
GEORG - The Creative Innovator
The mastermind behind the IMMEL wine family is Georg RIESER, a Rhenish by choice. His exciting biographical and professional background is the basis for a wine style that is both traditional and sustainable. Growing up in France and Germany, the great wine culture of the Grande Nation has also become part of his own DNA. The love of art, culture, craftsmanship and the joy of the intimate connection between wine and food inspire GEORG's ideas around the Rhine-Hessian growths. Training companies such as the Wagner-Stempel and Wittmann wineries or the Domaine Dagueneau show his pursuit of excellence and the joy of genuine wine of origin. As the father of two sons, organic viticulture is not only an important quality parameter of individual wines for GEORG, but also a promise to future generations.
