Situated on a hillside facing east at an altitude between 240 to 350 metres. The soil is quite varied with a sublayer of granite and chalk, but all has brown top soils with a strong concentration of calcium and magnesium that gives it typicity. The first mention of Kaefferkopf was in 1338 in the cadastre of the Abbaye de Pairis in Ammerschwihr. It has only recently gained its Alsace Grand Cru status, being the 51st vineyard to be accorded that honour.
The wines from Kaefferkopf are produced either from a single grape variety ( Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gros and Riesling ) or from a blend of all three varieties in strictly defined proportions.
Grand Cru Mambourg
Mambourg at Sigolsheim first mentioned in 783 for the quality and power of its wines. It is one of the earliest ripening sites in Alsace with excellent exposure to the sun. Calci-magnesique soil overlays outcrops of chalk and clay.
It is the Grand Cru for a special expression of Gewurztraminer, combining elegance with longevity on the palate.
